Papers, cups, and wrappers fly

as the next tube approaches.

People stand, adults holding

their kids hand.

Two beaming lights and then a blur

of red, white, and bkue.

Some remain sitting, while others

stand, ready to get off.

The doors slide open as people leave

and others scramble on,

not wanting to get separated.

When they close, it sits.

One second.

Two seconds.

And it's off.

Until the next one in five minutes.
