The Metro


Quotidian responses
Conceal and reveal
Who will be trusted
To be or to be (not)

No riffs on the classics
Not today, no
Classics don’t speak
For petulant poets

I wouldn’t know that
Can I talk to you please?
No? Don’t look away
Please really, it’s ok

I found a place to stay
Old friends return one day
We can wait for this train
In silence
