Locked Out

Think where you are bodily 
In Middletown with friends
How quickly the trees darken
After an hour everyone is babbling rapidly 
You’re okay in the periphery
He’s working on his second Ph.D in what exactly? 
Explain the difference between physical 
And mental sweat
You smell like arts and crafts
The element is Emily
Who should’ve been a model in the Great Depression
He is here but same as before doesn’t exist
You lied to a stranger on the platform
Crawl over the tracks 
Conductor don’t honk or pull the brake
She was the last thought yesterday 
Squatting and peeing on his floor
Enjoy her smell
Get her out of your way
