NaPoWriMo Poem#4: Pedestrian Ballet

Pedestrian Ballet

Steel and glass
Give way to brief glances
Of shimmering water
And concrete corridors
Where another river of dancing beings
travel in metal boxes-
In raw form on legs
On wheels–


Repel Merge

Synchronised chaos
Ground flying–
Bird flocks
Into L’s and Ubers
Escalators and revolving doors
Clusters change direction together
Then break into smaller groups
And smaller yet
To scatter off alone
No words spoken-
Silent pedestrian ballet
