Hopeless romanticism on a train


don't sit there
    pastel patched
    blue jeansed
    mint green sheer slipped
    babydoll pink snug dressed
    bare deep gold chained decolletage
    tastefully temptative
    pretty as a postcard
but workday weary

don't look so
jaded gaze neutral
flawless observer
    out the familiar
    slideshow landscape
    same as always once again
    rushing for it

Don't feel so
    thinned out
    locked in
    put down
    messed up
and don't sigh

don't sigh like that

don't just sit there
come unlock that frown
next to me
for a moment
    that can last
    for the travel time of neurons
    palm to mind
    or for a minor eternity
if we face this
hand in hand
