The last train is nearly dueThe underground is closing soonAnd in the dark deserted stationRestless in anticipationA man waits in the shadowsHis restless eyes leap and scratchAt all that they can touch or catchHidden deep within his pocketSafe within it’s silent socketHe holds a colored crayonNow from the tunnel’s stony wombThe carriage rides to meet the groomAnd opens wide and welcome doorsBut he hesitates, then withdrawsDeeper in the shadowsAnd the train is gone suddenlyOn wheels clicking silentlyLike a gently tapping litanyAnd he holds his crayon rosaryTighter in his handNow from his pocket quick he flashesThe crayon on the wall he slashesDeep upon the advertisingA single worded poem comprisedOf four lettersAnd his heart is laughing, screaming, poundingThe poem across the tracks reboundingShadowed by the exit lightHis legs take their ascending flightTo seek the breast of darkness and be suckled by the night
