The broken man emerges from the subway.   
The metallic vapors of manhole covers
penetrate his chest. So many insignificant
defeats, disappointments, broken and
hidden hopes trail him— ones that keep
him awake all night. Exhaustion keeps
him downcast, unaware of a horizon.
From corners, blind alleys leading
in and out of hell emerge the others
who also walk with him.
