Miniature Train-Riding

I almost can’t remember how the trains raced around the track. How Dad and I adjusted knobs and toggled twitches. How town lights turned on and off; how locomotives whirled out of the tunnel.

I almost can’t remember how much I miss those times with him.

Almost.

so much of his love
made by his hands
