In Transit: Solitary Reader

Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?


It is amusing,

In places so crowded,

teeming with thousands,

I am among those,

Who prefer to be solitary.

I’d rather read a novel,

Enjoy splendid isolation.

Are you traveling somewhere?

My volume has since transported me there.
