Reflections From The Road

I cannot sleep tonight
stars scream in my eyes
the train horn tosses
and turns in my bed
invisible children
stomachs as empty
as their dreams
in the rush of night
homeless clutching
cardboard resumes
and coffee cups
void of hope
fragile voices
asking my nightmares
for change
