The next stop is..

Always in the wait for the last stop,
anticipation ends at the far end;
indifferent announcements are made
over and over, still.
Cold metal cage opens and closes,
flows in an army of clones,
flushes out another army of clones;
another simple matter of exchange.
All are stoned like sculptures,
masterpieces created by blankness;
distinctively different yet strangely similar,
all in comply with the empty stare rule.
Motions stay frozen, so does
emotions, under lock and key in a forgotten island;
buried deep down in a bottomless hole,
brings about curiosity and danger.

Deadness condensed in the air,
grows by every minute, spreading around
vigorously like a seaonal flu;
unconscious are the patients, though.
A new deadly disease is born,
weathering one's affections bit by bit;
the only way to escape from further decay,
perhaps, is to leave at the right stop.

that 1st picture i have lying around here somewhere pinned to a posterboard :-)

subways always depress me. they are just as you described and no more, carrying clones from place to place to do their monotonous business.

Hi there!

I dont know what Im trying to do by leaving this message. I certainly dont mean to cause you any form of sadness. But perhaps, in this simple manner.. Id be able to extend further help.

I just thought that people, the world over might want to know what happened. Even through a single person's perspective. I hope that it might move them and start a chain.. of good thoughts and prayers.

So there it is. I hope you help me spread the word. Ive written it all down. On my blog.

Thank you very much, dearest!

I'm sure I wouldn't be able to write poetry while stuck in the tube... I wish I was rich enough not to travel by tube anymore, it's one of my least favourite thing in the whole world

exquisitely odd photographs -
makes my mind run riot at the
possibilities & the commentary/
prose beneath continues the
mysterious affair.

Oh, I quite love the metro! There's something about plunging into darkness, underground, that I quite like. :)
