Subway Poem 1

These skittering people on the train
Avoiding the berth of a huddled man
Fearful of his fear, his dissipation
The most helpless ever receiving the least help


A while back, I struck on the idea to take photo of a single person on the subway each day and create a year in portraits. Only thing is, I'm not that outgoing. So this weekend, I struck upon a different idea: subway poetry. A single, short poem based upon something or someone I saw on the subway or some thought, which struck me there. It won't be daily, I'm sure, but let's see how far it goes.
