like a top
spinning around itself
falling leaf

there was a baby boy
humming to himself
on the rush hour train
i smiled
he smiled back
i pretended to sleep
he looked away
giggling shyly

a baby on the train

with one hand
drinking milk from a bottle
and holding mom's forearm
with the other

streetlights, billboards and cars
hanging heavy on the horizon-
an orange moon

an old employee
who sits on a stool every day
at the train station,
was applying lipstick
behind a booth
