7.5 Minutes of Dark

Packed in tight
Faces knit with early morning woes
Others enraptured by tabloid poetry
A select few in broadsheet prose
As we descend in to our 7.5 minutes of black
Between walls never seen
Staring dully back
At commuting communities
Whose names not even they know
Track lights flicker
Shuttled forward in to their days
Disgorged into the light unchanged
Wishing they had arrived quicker
