love (in a time of passing trains)

Frank Prem

I have no


just a hiss
then a kiss


a clatter down the line

doors open
on the platform side


in and out
in and out


I wait


one north
one south










don’t need
a ticket
to stand
right in the heart
right here
where I am


just a hiss

a kiss


the door will open
on the platform side
