estación pagarear

shards of pristine white
cutting through your hazy head
You feel as though your always
a second away from breaking out
into the shakes

Looking up... the subway station has a point
where trees from the back parking lot reach
through openings in the roof
there are a lot of birds today
for just a second, the station looks
like a bird house at the zoo
complete with huge, steele bird-like sculptures
that look like they had to be inspired by the pigeons
collecting and loitering high above the platforms

There is a group of children
and chaperons
on the inbound train side
the children look mezmerized
as the grown-ups point and spew factoids
I can easily imagine them all at the zoo
For some reason,
the announcements are all in Spanish today
