{Wed 29 November 2006}   Escalator
Escalator

Lonely in London,
people float upward above me,
headless dreamers
on an earthbound Jacob’s ladder.

Denying gravity,
their sheer mass hovers
undefiant,
static in my airspace.

Our chariot screams, heaving
in metallic anguish, straining
its indifferent load to the spewing
forth, the spattering

of conscious flesh
upon the unconscious pavements
of this ancient present.

Hi Tia,

I can definitely relate to this one, although I never quite saw my daily commute this way. I’ll take a different point of view when I’m on the escalator tomorrow :-))

Love
Nitzan
