There is too much pain,
Speeding on the rails of this New York train,
I feel the hungry,
I sense the desperate,
And I sit with the near insane,

Uptown,
Downtown,
Brooklyn,
Bronx,
Queens,
All around,

Faces,
From places,
Five boroughs,
Park Avenue,
Across the Hudson,
All leaving traces,

Of what,
But,
How do I,
Know,
Any.
I live in the cut…
