KHyal Kouture DF: I saw this on the subway yesterday in NYC and wrote it down for you. It’s a series called SubTalk — “Train Thought”. Pretty great to see poetry on the Metro!

shook down on me

the dust of snow

from a hemlock tree

has given my heart

a change of mood

and saved some part

of a day I rued

Starts a smile to think of someone on a city train in March

taking down the words from a poem on a subway wall

to send to a friend . . . the world is all right, then.

and hope I said thank You.  ~ DF
