Subway, Study in Black

I sit motionless

among strangers

surrounded by steel and glass

united in suspended animation

in moving darkness

we hurtle down midnight tunnels

glow of small screens

casting distorted shadows

across random faces

speeding  by safety lights

that stutter through the car

lending surreal

nightmarish cast

to silent assembly
