it’s much too early for this

I was half-asleep
on the morning train when
the elderly woman
started in,
rapping her cane
against the dirty floor
and shouting
“You must get to know Jesus! You must get to know God!”
and
I
dozily
thought it ironic
that we were
Manhattan-bound,
where you can
get to know the other guy
much more easily.
