Girl On A Train

We’ve decided the world needs more poetry. Here’s our first submission. Please send us yours. Select pieces may appear in this newsletter. Thanks.


Brown face,

Chocolate hair,

Almond eyes,

Ready to withdraw

But waiting….


Fine expensive clothing,

Delicate, prideful, fearsome;

Clean and pressed

With edges frayed.


Stolen glance,

Quiet reproach or

Mistaken intent;

Peripheral understanding.


While screaming wheels beneath

Steel on steel,

Sing their song;

Pleading in the darkness
