(XXIV) Observe

Observing a lady
And her mother
The fourth daughter
And their sinister sister.

Do they know each other?

Legs parallel and crossed
24 stops

Frail limbs and coherent hips
Every tunnel the same width

Hidden ribs adjacent and stiff
Silent on the edge of the same cliff

Metal jaws  
Rambunctiously chomp
On stories of elasticity
Rubber on wheels
Once used
To carry us silently
Between stops

I quietly watch
4 metals jaws
Rusting
Like the screaming wheels
Beneath this train car

Such screeching doesn't get us far.
A violent halt
25 stops.

And I wonder if they know each other?
