The metro girl...

The whiff of sudden air
Always let me know
You are there
In that compartment of metro...

Announcements made over address system
And the simultaneous automatic doors burst open
To let you out from the belly of the train
Reminds me always life's halts and stops
And how images underground pops
Out of busy city borne day...

And at the evening...
More and more crowd
Run up and down escalators...
Like columns of heads tired on return
To their favoured destinations...
I am reminded of you again
Your numbed feet...hazy brain...
Your forehead with beads of sweat
Your smudged up lipgloss...your flushed cheeks red...
Your dawn to dusk runs to and fro...
Your anxious stare at watch...your furrowed brow...
Your autorickshaw wait-
At the non scheduled spot...
Your phone losing charge...
You in traffic jam caught...

Everyday...day in and out
Metro trains remind me of you no doubt...
I can only admire this superwomanliness...
I gape awed seeing you running the life's race...
