Pompeii Train

The train had a
Yellow door
I didn’t know
What it opened
Or held shut
But when I
Boarded the train
I knew one thing:
The people
Surrounding me
Terrified me

People I didn’t know
People I didn’t want to know

So I kept my eyes
Peeled on that
Yellow door
Hoping
Praying
That if I did
The people
Surrounding me
Couldn’t
Wouldn’t
See
The American
Stained fear
In my eyes
