subway forest

06/17/2009

In the subway car stand static trees
Arms like branches of all sizes reach out
Making a maze of corporal tangles blocking ingress
Like a lush evergreen forest where every touch is a prick
Stand aside and hold your own ground
Child saplings the only unsteady movement in this breezy wood
Kindling to fodder the fiery tempers of lumbermen
