A rattling on the subway.
With the flickering of lights.

The stained map
of lower Manhattan
hung above our lolling heads.

We sloshed around in
the plastic fluorescence.
The door was ajar
and whistled beside us.

It is 3 a.m. on this
wintry Tuesday.
Your snowy shoulders
slowly thaw.

We are hunched in our
scarves and mittens.
Snow melting from
our boots.

I remember
this time in spring.
When our shoulders fell back,
and our faces were full of sun.
