Gas Stop On The Hi-Line - Shelby, Montana

"Go back to sleep. The hour is small.
     A freight train between stations
Shook you out of sleep with all
        Its lonely ululations....

The hour is small. Resume your rest. 
        Tomorrow will be kinder. 
Here comes a freight train nosing west, 
        Pulling the dawn behind her."
