after a

after a
packed train
pulls away
from a

crowded
subway platform,
those morning commuters
who are left behind to
wait for the
next

train
turn into
choristers, huddled
together
in
sections,

arranged
by time and
gumption, over best
sound, heads down,
conductor-
less, tuned
out

and into
the digital
music of their
lives, primed for
the next set of
train doors to
open right
in front of
them

six shops deep into

six shops deep into
knick-knack hell, we could smell the
sea still beckoning –

when you say Savannah, i
am a bull in a china shop

the mind is crowded
at a level entirely
unsustainable –
you are looking
at me from across
the river, at least
a school of
thoughts flounder,
waves licking our toes

the glass was overflowing

the glass was overflowing
with kisses, set stranded
in the center
of a crowded bistro,
so lonely, still so
full of promises
