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
.

on the opposite

on the opposite
side of the track, you rivet
me, and as the train
rushes into the station
early, the eye is electric
performing a swift
jigsaw puzzling of
your face, arms,
legs, look, pose
, then
putting them back
together again, linked
in slivers
of glass and gaps
between coupled
cars, a classic
theme and variation
.

your head is resting

your head is resting
against the train window
eyes just
making out
the underground
graffiti between stations
this, i am imagining
as my head leans
against the cool glass,
heart just
learning to make
the connection, caught
between stations
