Subway Poem # 7

A bird in the subway is worth two in the air, I always say.

Subway Poem # 7

a man with a parrot perched 
on his shoulder,
in time with me,
parallel, down the stairs.
unfazed the bird
of royal blue plumage,
unfazed the man
with ruby in ear.
and then we part ways
                                                                                    on the platform.
                                                          (they're queens-bound.)
                                                                                        the parrot that travels
                                                                                      with man 
                                                                                       underground.
