I AM riding on a limited express, one of the crack trains

 of the nation.

Hurtling across the prairie into blue haze and dark air

 go fifteen all-steel coaches holding a thousand people.

(All the coaches shall be scrap and rust and all the men

 and women laughing in the diners and sleepers shall

 pass to ashes.)

I ask a man in the smoker where he is going and he

 answers: "Omaha."
