BEYOND THE TERMINUS
(3/14/14)


they see
the familiar
trappings

job

car

home

wife

and smile

they expect
to communicate
upon a common
ground
of experience

they do
not
realize
that I project
such normality
only to exist
among them
with a minimum
of discord

I really
have nothing
to say
to them

while the train
seems
to be back
on the track
I long ago
disembarked
from a station
not
on their map
