Poets by BitterGrapes Poets by BitterGrapes
we

fill evening subway seats
with hardshell postures.
stiff eggs in a racing carton,
we bleed invisibly from hairline cracks
down the seat
screaming soundlessly through the floor
onto the street
and become the whispers
of tires on the wet ground
we listen to ourselves
and interpret.

from the hip on the
Howard/Dan Ryan red line

Great angle, composition, mood, lightning - an excellent capture of something arguably mundane.
