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.

“The imaginary place to go to” by Edie Pijpers


faces on the subway

Faces on the subway

Rarely a second glance

Still, when our eyes meet

It’s something like romance.

Some like their smart phones

Some read their books

Me, I watch the faces

Collect their stolen looks.
