The MTA

You have held me up right 
every single time 
drowned the sound of my tears 
with your 
screeching engine and tires 
reminded me 
methodically, 
what my next stop was 
shown me the rising and setting sun 
seated me in front of women who, like me, have cried the whole ride
reminded me I'm not the only one
Loneliness is a common thread on all who board this train
