Elevator Rides

Up and down, in and out

Open and closed, the silver doors slide
New faces step through, onto checkered tile
Grasping onto the gray rail

The press of a button, the orange light flashes

Up and down, in and out

Open and closed, the silver doors slide
In come people, hurrying through
Not recognizing faces or caring for that matter

Tall or short, thin or wide
Different expressions pass by
Riding on, high and low
Until it stops, and you’re alone

Up and down, in and out

Open and closed, the silver doors slide
Going on an elevator ride
