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

spring will catch us off-

spring will catch us off-
guard every time,
like a smile at
day’s end,
on the station
platform, across
the third rail

the dull yellow

the dull yellow
of the platform edge
is a chemical reminder
to your body that
there is no glory
in jumping, however
your brain may
dance with the
notion, drunk or half-
asleep on your
daily commute.
spare all of us
further misery
