Bart to the City

bart to the city

whirring dizzily cheap american bullet train! redwhiteblue! olympic swimmer
dive into cement throat-
fast- shortly after- a loud rising humming
a million long ultraviolet lights turned on and cranked up until they die or suffocate on blinding joy!-
like the sound of obedient human brains on cocaine!

but then it's gone. and disappears behind. quickly. too quickly.
the train is shot like a crying liberal newborn out into the acid daylight and it s***s and tries to shake the filthy people off as it desperately hurries to its next station.
