The Metro After 1AM

Each station marks an anonymous arrival.
Behind screens, each tunnel descent is metal cold
and hot air, cutting deeper into the Earth
bright lights blinking on the city’s last bend
before the volcanic rock, the lake bed,
the resting yard of all trains lined graffiti white,
pinked to dusk, passing stones all full of yesterday’s kisses
empty except for the dream-horses of sleeping commuters.
