The anonymous people in the train

Subway c. - 1937 (Oil on Canvas)

The anonymous people in the train

I wonder about their journeys

Their lives, their troubles

But all I can see is rush

 

Are these anonymous people in the train happy?

Are they sad?

Are they even alive?

The only thing I can see is rush

 

What are their names?

What are their pets’ names?

Do they have someone waiting for them when they arrive home?

Do they ever feel at home?

All I can see is rush

 

I still wonder day after day

Which stories are these anonymous people carrying in their computers, tablets, phones, and headphones…?

What music do they listen to?

 

Everyday I see a bunch of anonymous people rushing somewhere

And I rush along

Feeling detached

And anonymous

*Painting by Mark Rothko (Subway 1937)
