Baby Blue Leisure Socks and Hand Bag

by Tom Hatch

Briskly a brief cased suit runs up the aisle about to miss his stop
knocking over another’s cup of coffee brown as an early morning
commuting deltas starts to flow under the rows of seats as the coffee's
Current spurned by sighs, nudges and "not again"
lifting away from the floor shoes
brief cases and bags
this is like a bleeding wound
the pulsating blood meandering
like an ancient river by
the movement of the train
causing an ox bow like lake
on the linoleum terrain
baby blue leisure soxs in
tasseled loafers jerks up
Squealing an accountant
finding errors on a spread sheet
a woman across the sail head phone texting
looking at her Vogue a picture
of Drew Barrymore in an ad
unaware of the river moving
on the floor is her
baby blue hand bag
stained bottom

  1. love it! esp the baby blue hand bag stained bottom, the ugly gritty dirt of the real world.
