In Flux

In Flux

Before dawn.
The commuter train stops at the station
just long enough
for people
who will stand on the street in the noon sun
well turned-out and vigorous
but right now
they are drained by fatigue and green
in the dreamlike gray of dawn.
The commuter train stops at the station
just long enough
for these people
to board.
The commuter train leaves the station
with these people
seated or
traveling the aisles looking for a seat
in their midday clothes
worn at dawn
going its way down the track
lit up like daylight inside.
