Every time the subway lights go off
I close my eyes and listen to my cart speeding over the rails
What was it that you said, about the velocity of life ?
The one that carries the immigrant, the bible belt strapped and the intermittent traveler through the woven passage of a history they can see in the molding of the land.
2. I can’t quite remember
why I live life so fast,
but I feel (it)
the hill and the turning of the tracks
3. The trains are quite quiet here,
and few people talk.
It’s as though the lights were still off .
