BLYYFJSMSLY:

The 8:15 Train on a Sunday Night
for M who drives his parents everywhere when he can

Old people should never have to commute.
Look at his knees, her paper hands.
Look their feathery heads bending
to peer at the blurring world.
Hasn’t it done that enough?
I think the elderly should
be carried to and fro in
warm sleighs filled
with smells from
their youth.
