‘Subway’ by Charlie Eliot Winters (Poet) FreeSpace #3

16 Dec

night-subway- by Jimmy Ernst 1948



by Charlie Eliot Winters


Disjointed and anointed
by the sins on the railway
the singing
unties your shoelaces
the man in front
turns to stare
as you knot them up again
he recalls a specific time
before it grew vague to him
The radial tungsten glow
lights the up and down
a face falls into the frame
of a handrail
A new way of seeing –
a cross section between
dignified dysfunction
and reptilian style
basking in the underground neon
for sustenance and transport
Small blessings
in the form of erotic dreams
hang low
while you wait





You can see Charlie’s first showcase on ArtiPeeps here. And also find  his FreeSpace #1 ‘That Day’ here,  and FreeSpace #2 ‘Love Letter of Sorts’ here.
