we’re not here for long

We’re not here for long

Standing in the subway

Listening to a song

.

This is where I transfer

Alongside the others

Two friends meet by chance

Lean in close like lovers

.

And somewhere nearby

A white rabbit’s busy pacing

.

He must’ve forgot

.

We’re not here for long

A parenthesis between the Ages.
