On a subway ride

June 4, 2009

Subway2

The subway clicked
like a fast girl’s gum,
and was filled with
hormones and
heartbeats…

Two bodies pressed
in the curves of
each other,
and breath
shifted
between mouths…

A strong
finger
fumbled through
the thin folds
of a
newspaper…

A draped dress
relaxed and slouched
to release
a vanilla scent…

Silver coins
trickled
like small raindrops
when a peddler
pleaded
for change…

A boy
clutched
the black straps
of his bag
and stood
up….

Exhausted,
the train slowed
and opened
its doors
to free
him
