Transit Thoughts



The constant motion, the traffic,
these blood stream natures
played out on the vein-mapped streets
twinkling in the midnight universe...
Atlanta shines, gold dribbled molasses
below a high-rise window. Un-curtained,
we rise into the sky and leave a blink
to warn those weary travelers, to signal God
to safely let us sleep... A steady roar
drones on unnoticed, as we read
and drink, and wait our turns to see
the gold stars that fell in Alabama.

  So what is it about traffic on loop I 285 you get more crashes per day than a day at Daytona. Maybe the city should put up some bleachers and charge admission?
What Gold Stars? Anyway it is a nice poem it just needs
some sex and drugs and it would be purr fect

  Alanta shines. Sounds like many glorified promises of fun but it strays you from better conscience.

Love this line

  i like thoughts, observations, and the two entwined.

you paint well a picture of looking down on traffic and how red lights move like blood in veins.

'gold dribbled molasses' is great. gives this piece a bit of texture, taste, and a sheen.

a moment captured. a keepsake of time.

yup.
