A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

42nd &vs* 33rd

I know a guy who makes sketches
On Metro North. Fast lines.

I wonder why, where does he live,
What is he shuttling between?

I know a guy who’s building a model
Of the old Penn Station while his wife is abroad.

I wonder what will happen to the model when he joins her there.
After thirty-two years is it his way of saying good-bye to New York?

I know these guys, I know these trains, I know I'd prefer the old Penn Station
I wonder if I could offer to hold on to the model, just till they come back (if they ever do)
