subway notes

my new phone has a special buttons to make voice-notes
-riding the subway a while ago
(5:03pm 4/7/05)
i took two notes
reminding me i wanted to write about this:

so many people on the subways sleep
nodding out
from exhaustion of the day's work?
or the lack of oxygen
in those deep tunnels
a million crammed in people
windows sealed, now
air conditioning

nodding off
are they dreaming?

i must read books
or do yoga, qi-gung
or photograph them...
think about them.

waiting is always an active process for me

so much time in the subway is used for

kind of

drives me crazy
to watch people waste time...

but are they dreaming?
or planning out their day?
do they nodd off
"for lack of oxygen"
as bridget says?

are they listening with one year as the conductors call out the stations?
or do the tunnels
small screetchings/ (cut off)


the new york city suburbs/subways
are like the groin
the genitals
of the city
the city
is nature
and the cement dresses it like pants

being in the subways
is not only going inside the pants
but going inside of the organs

but down here you smell the rich musk of balls and asshole
the dirt
and the seduction
