Subway Smell


subway smell
swims up nose
musty wheels
cling and spin

out my window
signs fly past
whoosh ‘n swish
whoosh ‘n swish

bodies push
heat swells
I collapse
pink dress spills

feet tramp through
on sunburnt hands
fowl my fingers
hair and dress

just a lump
a sunburnt pink-
dressed tramp
whoosh ‘n swish, whoosh ‘n swish, whoosh ‘n swish…
