Welcome

Fascinated by the people and

the quickly moving feet


I jump in anticipation

of the bump,

the push aside to the next

train,

track,

stop.

How long will I wait?

How did I get here?


Thoughts running wildly


I wasn't trampled,

good.

I’m here,

good.


What happened?

I have no idea

except for the voice I heard

saying out there somewhere

Stand clear of the closing doors please!
