abundance approaching drowning

everything that is

everything that is
magical about a train
ride is not the train

ride – i stare out the window,
penn station to penn station,

new york city to

shimmer, cast long spells

distance of
your slightly
damaged laughter
i may still appear
to shimmer
from where
you are
