I donítí know Syracuse that well, even though Iím studying here. So this haiku gave me a chance to go exploring a bit. Because I never knew the statues were there, when I went to see them I thought they were strange. Why would these statues be situated on this abandoned train stop, with cars rushing by?

Yet when I looked up articles on the statues, there are people who seem to really care about them. They give them scarves and they repaint them. I thought it was sweet. The haiku says, ďThis is their last stop,Ē but I figured maybe itís not such a fatal ending. Maybe this is a beginning, or a midpoint, and these statues are traveling, and not so alone.

Gleaming ghosts still wait
At a vacant train station
This is their last stop
