Waiting for the Train

The platform is blanketed in blessed shade,

the train is late, and it is too hot.

A middle aged woman covers herself in suntan lotion.

A young man speaks a foreign language on the phone,

perhaps calling to tell someone he’s going to be late.

A woman in a high-via vest walks up and down the platform,

watering the flowers with plastic containers filled with water.
