-en route-

August 6, 2012


scenery flies by in a colorless blur-

she’s not paying attention anyway-

her eyes are closed in peaceful sleep-

while the passengers around her scream in fear-

while they cling to one another for safety-

she dreams of the things that might have been-

of the things that could be-

a fire erupts in the cabin, dangerously close-

she is blissfully unaware in her pill-induced repose-

the train runs perilously en route towards a fiery death-

she is the only one who will die happy, and unafraid,

even while asphyxiation takes her life violently-
