Cocktail Salute

10.00

By Kevin Estrada

A study of the people you pass on the street without thinking twice about. This chapbook is bookended by two poems that reveal the narrator's identity as a fly-on-the-wall angel ruminating on his observations in a city of the obscure.

Chasing Trains

s t e p l i g h t l y onto the
platform

the train will be by soon
through the long tunnel
concrete covering the moon

newspaper pages fly from the trashcan
to the turnstile
to the beggar’s feet
to the tiled beam
to the change machine
to the oncoming subway fleet

the winter front manages to travel
down the escalator
greeting your face

it cannot compare to the arrival
of the midnight line as it rushes past
rustling clothes;
then the doors open
