metro anywhere

where
did you come
across all these years

   click click

who sent you
to find a blue woman
riding the slippery rails
of wounded youth

   click click

you are the antidote
to the low end of life

   click click

here's my ticket
off peak one way

   click.

  1. The click click reminds me of the roller coaster pulling up the first long rail, the final click at the top means the wild ride is about to begin - one way indeed.

  3. How wonderful. I remember "riding the slippery rails of wounded youth" — sometimes as though it were yesterday, sometimes as if it happened to someone else.
    Beautifully done.
