White bagel with cream cheese

some scratches

Smoked salmon, capers, dill

The two feet tall ginger baby
wearing a monkey hat
holding an orange purse as long as she was
with a hand extended in the air

Streak of blood staining the blue seat
Remnants of someone’s relieved dinner
splayed in the corner
Black grocery bag
contents unknown

Shifting feet to a beat
Hooded teenager with a skateboard
hopping off at 14th St
Plaid shoe shaken by an impatient leg

The speed and power of the express train
racing through underground tunnels
beneath you
