New Way from the Subway

Published March 28, 2021 by tindertender

There’s an onrushing consciousness in the air,
But to engage with it and exchange with it

You need to let go of the shtick you’ve worked forever.

Know what that’s like? It’s like the moment

A subway train whooshes past you,
Sucking the air out of the station

Including the emotional gas that made you bloated.

Then you feel lighter, even giddy

As you look at your partner and say
Come on, let’s walk! Let’s walk all day.
