Terse Verse O’erheard

by

I. Woman

“I never think when I

Write

My songs. That’s how I wrote,

‘My enchanted kingdom,

My castle in the sea.’

It just came out.”

 

II. Man

“My imagination is crazy. I dreamt

My head was

Shaved.

My hat was

White.

I was in this room of

Mirrors.”

– subway passengers simulateously insulting the creative process and making compelling case for me to jump from moving train and seek refuge in the rain-slimed tunnels beneath the city. Aug ’11
