Tube.

Platform
curving spanning
banks
verging on
an empty river bed
lined with steel veins
are spaces for trains
stretch and roll
stock kink and flex
scratch and screech
emotive commotion
inertia snake hurtling wake
all aboard
take a seat
strangers faces meet
into the tunnel
aperture funnel
precipice
shelf stacked
high upon a
geological happenstance
look at the view from here
base jump now
free fall from grace
fulfill an overwhelming compulsion
to communicate with space
hear that
orbital orchestra
a whistling flow
remember
amnesia
vertigo

I read a lot of poetry, Paul. You truly are a brilliant poet. I hope you recognize this.
