“The Trains,” by William Heyen

June 22, 2010

A poem that sounds like freight cars straining around a curve, Treblinka, Treblinka.

I read “The Trains” from The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature (8th ed.) edited by Michael Meyer.  William Heyen published it in his books, Erika: Poems of the Holocaust(Vanguard, 1984) and The Host: Selected Poems 1965-1990 (Time Being, 1994).
