  1. i know the tall suit who spent
    three weeks reading On The
    Road
    , the curly-haired forty-
    something who is a runner
    or wants to be, the older gentle-
    man who travels from
    somewhere wide
    enough to plant his own
    daffodils for the empty
    vases on the twelfth
    floor, and the young
    woman who keeps her hair
    interesting. plus or minus
    ten minutes, we all ride in
    the same train car
    together, towards a
    ballpark destination

  3. Love this! Both photo and poem are a creative approach to an otherwise unnoticeable part of your day. The photo is like a contemporary landscape.

    • (smile) thank you! i saw the trampled flower a foot away from me as i was waiting for the transfer this morning. when i got on, i noticed that this guy was still reading On The Road, a little deeper into the book, and the guy who usually gets off a stop before me was carrying a big bouquet of cut daffodils (in a grocery bag from home possibly), still religiously reading his NYTimes.

  4. I love the golden wash over the every day surface we walk on. It gives the mundane a refreshing, appreciative light. The phrases “somewhere wide enough to plant” and “the girl who keeps her hair interesting” really painted your fellow commuters.

  5. I love the saturation levels on the yellow platform. I like how both the poem and the picture speak to the commute in a different artistic expression. They seem to come at the same topic from different directions and deliver well together.
