London Subway

Having fun today with London subway stations – and borrowing the first verse from Baccus Olypus , a poet friend:
 
SUBWAY
 
(First verse borrowed from Baccus’ poem: )
 
From an opposite seat
he stares when he thinks I’m not looking
He doesn’t know that I hear the bones in his neck grind
and his eyes swivel –
 
And there
They disappear into his head
That sinks into his shoulders
That slump and sink into
His belly
 
Brent Cross
 
My God
Now only his feet are left
And now a sucking black void
 
Gunnersbury – Ickenham
 
I bend down and look closer
 
Canada Water
 
And I am sucked in too
What a bloody sucker I am
 
Cockfosters
 
Too late
 
Epping
 
End station – Killburn
 
with sorry asses chained to their
sins and lamenting their guilt
 
“Welcome workers to
Crystal Bloody Palace
hang your hopes on the peg there,
here is much to do
and atone for
and we will help you with that –
scum!”
 
I looked for the sucking black void
I found it
 
Seen enough
Going back up
 
Sharing Cross
Mile End
Olympia
 
Temple
Embankment
 
Seven Sisters
 
High Gate
 
Green Park
