Sketches from the Morning Train

Preening, sighing, eyebrows drawn,
lips glazed slick, blushed cheeks
and cleavage bursting out
hoping for a glance from the prince
of her nocturnal fancies.


He celebrates
the blur of ambiguity
his disgust is painted
on his airbrushed face,
pointing to another path.


She sits inside
a version of herself,
pouring away life,
she purses her lips,
shuts her eyes tight.
