Morning Commute

A Poem by Frederick Kesner

My feet throb through my shoes
after a brisk walk to the station.
I keep my ears plugged with my beats
as I find my seat at the furtherest point.
Backs of heads, napes, and collars
mushroom and stare at me --
my polarised sunnies paint them bright;
Yet all I see is a tiny reflection of me.
Here in my world another day begins.
This cosmos is peopled isolation.

It reminds me of my one trip to New York. Thank you for sharing your brilliance with us mere mortals again.

Peopled isolation indeed. Even neighbors were ignored. City life is crowded aloneness together.
