Subway To Downtown
We go into Quincy Market
to get away from the cold wind
sneaking around tall buildings
before you stepped off the curb
you didn’t look where you were going
and almost got hit by a bicyclist
but I put my hand on your shoulder
to stop you, winter wind kept blowing
in our faces all the way to the North Church.
Later, we have a cup in Doyle’s Café
before we head back to Braintree
where we parked the car
that will take us to Hull.
The Atlantic was still waiting for us
wave after faithful wave.
The Mid-Ocean Ridge bubbling out
like the head of a brand new child.
