As a railfan, I pay a lot of attention to train accidents. A particularly unfortunate and inexplicable accident happened in Valhalla, New York, on February 3. I wrote a poem about that accident and posted it on Facebook
. I had employed what for me were unusual techniques, and I was looking for feedback on the result. What feedback I did get—not a all of it came through Facebook—was not especially positive. I therefore revised the poem, and feedback this time was good enough for me to consider the poem done, at least for now.
I have posted the poem on my Web site. It is titled “Metro-North Accident, Valhalla, New York, February 3, 2015,” and you can read it here
. Comments on the poem will be much appreciated. You can’t leave them on the Web site, but you can leave them here.
