GENRE: Drama (with music)
Clyde, an irascible rebel (who lost his eyesight decades ago), is estranged from his family, and serving time at a halfway house for the consequences of his bad temper. As he struggles to find his place, Clyde comes under the influence of a charismatic street hustler with a scheme to finance an escape to paradise, where Clyde believes he will be finally free.
As riders upon a train
The purpose of life
is to love — and be loved.
Nothing more, nothing less
as the pragmatic-minded might advise.
If doing neither — loving and being loved — then,
what is it that engages your time
but a game of waiting, waiting and waiting
for the perfect moment to arrive.
In time wasted on waiting for make-believe moments
we are riders upon trains traveling past
where strangers wait — alone
for the sun to warm their cold shoulders
and a pleasant wind to stir
they might have
and the moment
when love arrived and it felt
like everything and nothing else
