Frankfurt Station

Like the nearly empty road in Poem of the Road, train stations give rise to existential questions.  Where are we hurrying, and why? When a track and platform are empty, has anyone actually traveled that way? When I am travelling by train, I am always wondering about departures and arrivals—if not my own, then the comings and goings of all the other people, who are there, or not there.
