Joan McNerney takes the A Train

Joan McNerney takes the A Train


“A” train
 
 
brassy blue
electric
 
close your eyes
watch points
like stars
 
think now
how insignificant
our mumblings
compared
to train’s blare
 
compared to
stars known
in no language
burn shoot
thru
tiger’s eyes
 
our brains in
constant action
reaction
 
to what we do not know
plans of distant stars
galaxies floating as
 
“A” train
silver worm
slides under
big belly
of city
