Subway Poem #4

Fourth in the series of my Subway Poems. Poetry in motion.


Subway Poem #4

"i was drinking
last night." "i thought
you were
working."
"uh huh, i was
drinking
at work."
"hey! you're dripping!" shouts the lady with a slurpee 
to the teen with ice cream
"oh yeah," he grins,
licking vanilla ooze from the cone
while two women
chew the fat
about flesh-eating zombies,
urban legend-wise, oblivious to
the madonna/whore drifting
down the aisle, baby in papoose,
face 
at her slight bosom, 
amongst the babble 
of dozens of digressing tongues.
