PASSENGER, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: This one on the platform
Last Line: She boards with an assault motion.
Subject(s): Commuters; Travel; Journeys; Trips

This one on the platform,
her smile twisted, the lipstick
distorted, in her black fur coat
and hat, is defiant, her smile sharpening
as the train approaches and vanishing
with the train's arrival.
She boards with an assault motion.
