#191. a moment ago

March 4, 2010

a moment ago
the car was so full

jostled people exit
an old woman falls
gathered by the herd
and gone

now there are only two of us left
no strangers
fingers folded laced
a newspaper

soon last stop
brooklyn bridge
everyone must leave the train
brooklyn bridge
all us ghosts remain

    Since I haven’t been on a subway in years…it took me two readings to get it….and I like it very much.
