Subway Haikus

1. The city’s vacuum/
Sucks desire from ev’ryone/
Regardless of need/

2. Even the junkies/
Want more than a simple fix/
When walking these streets/

3. The beggars’ stories/
Deserve spoken word Emmys/
For their complex plots/

4. The best stories have/
Misfortune, hard work and hope/
Often with a child/

5. Pregnancy works well/
But mostly for the “fathers”/
(Who don’t have to show)/

6. Six women from work/
Gossiping in Bengali/
One translates for friend/

7. Besides Latina/
They could be by a river/
Washing their saris/
