Raising a future (Day 807)

hours crawled 

people brushed past  

raising a future

like walls around us

a labyrinth   and all 

around us 

said me too  

exclaimed we too  

into the gray 

middle distance 

of Thursday-night 

weekend  fighting back 

the Friday morning 

rising like steam 

from subway vents 

all around us 

rushing  rushing
