it’s only a cup of coffee

15 May

the train station scoreboard
hangs down
not in winners and losers,
but in destinations of
desert sky compass
waiting for all aboard again.
even the mcdonald’s tables play along
extending like tongues into the
wide-open terminal where
strange eyes crash and
maybe i’m not in a hurry.

    I’m getting all fanboyish.

    Apologies.

      the train station has that effect.
      loitering is very much allowed.

    Doctor, doctor, exorcise Paul Simon from my head. (To a tourist [like me] a station is what you’d expect a station to be.) Here be a poem.
