I Do Not Understand

No Trains To Goneland

I do not understand.
Gone?
Gone?!

I understood to the other room.
I understood to the store.
Sure, to work, that was adjustable and understandable.
To another city.
Yes even that time to another country.
But to be nowhere-to-be-found
no such being anywhere—
no matter how carefully I look
no matter how much I need…
