Blur

Apparition is a blur consisting
Of faces, in the running train

Apparition is a moment’s blur
Of crowd on train foot board.

Crowd is faces whizzing past
My face, in other train’s blur.

It is blur from a moving train.
It is no face, only a moment.

(After reading Ezra pound’s short poem “In A Station of the Metro”)
