#318. heat wave

July 9, 2010

in
the subway
with
all the odors
of
decaying life
the
heat blasts
by
the people
on
platforms
are
wilting
in
the stench
then
get aboard
the
long train
to
hot stations
then
up stairs
and
down passages
and
up stairs
then
out into the rain refreshed breeze

    Oh my…I hadn’t thought about the heat wave back there in relationship to the subways….oh how the rain would seem heaven sent as you came up from there…you always give me a fresh perspective on life there. ūüėČ

  2. Oh I feel that is the worst about summer days is the rain and subway cars. People without umbrellas soaked in polluted rain stuffed in a hot subway car smelling of wet dog. Great imagery in your post. P.S. Those platforms can be brutal in the heat.
