I went to photograph the Band-aid from yesterday (which upon closer inspection may not be a Band-aid at all; so much for waxing lyrical). I went in a rain-snow drizzle, and on the way I found these hulking, shining, solid metaphors.

Side tracks and switch--do you want to change direction?

switch tracks

You may wish to switch tracks, but you probably don't want to be sidelined.

How long, how long must I wait here?

This isn't really a metaphor, but I like the promise of a golden west, here in the gloomy east. Not sure how trustworthy that promise is, though.

PS--seems I've seen the same thing, had the same thought, and shared it here before--but at a better time of year (link)

It feels autumnal! The weather lately is the wrong end of cold and raw.

you made me think how funny it s, in your metaphor, to excoriate the existence and use of switches as a form of moral flimsiness. And then t realize thatthe same folks, in this metaphor, disapprove profoundly of junctions.

Those are some really good metaphors. Also graffiti.

This really does seem like the winter that will never end, doesn't it?

I like your original Band-aid theory. :-)

It's interesting, looking at the tracks, how archaic they look. Tens of thousands of sleepers, just to get anywhere, which will all need to be replaced. Points that need regular tending and fixing. Gravel that will wash away over time. And yet, this is literally what our world runs on.
