Fukuoka

What would you find
in the flash of Fukuoka subway
These faces are typical
pondering their day at
the office.
Maybe.
The only sound I perceive
is the swish swosh of the
train rushing
underground
between Tenjin Minami and
Nakasu Kawabata stations.
I wish of chatters of the
homegoers.
None.
Silence blanket the
tiresome events of the day.
And we’re loud, loud
of ladies of the foreign lands
to whom I can truly call
bestfriends
despite of the 10 mere hours
of initial encounter.
They are the anomaly of
this scene of the subway.
Anomaly that is strangely
familiar
of a heart longing for an
exchange of warm words
in this foreign country of
Japan.
I hope to be that loud
next time we’re
heading for
Brazil
(wishing hard for that day
to come)
