The Core

Pulled by the tide of survival towards the steel towers, encased in the germ tube that is transit, staring into the red taillights begrudging their way to the core. My mind wanders and try’s to imagine what those around me are and are into. Is he an arrogant ass?, is she a cheater? are those two really that obtuse and opinionated? After all, it helps pass the time on the commute and I have less time to consider the flu germs flying about the steel capsule as people around me continually cough, sneeze and wheeze their way into the dull morning.
The bell rings and I disembark with that bus stops assigned sheeple. Trudge along the icy sidewalk, nod at the regular homeless man with his cap out. Wonder at the regular passes bye I see every morning, undeviating in their office attire, always at the same crosswalk in the same position, like some re-run of real life.
I walk into the revolving door behind someone else, I mean why should I use my energy to push it right? it’s taking all I have just to be a awake. Then the elevator. Yet another device with a buzzer to alert the un-attentive. I step in. There it is, the smell of cheap girly perfume and fart, but who? surely not her, far too attractive, her?, in the manlike business suit? -no, eyes are cast downwards, noses crinkle. Oh yes, that one for sure in the baggy sweats and hockey Jersey, a class act for sure. Or maybe I should not be so judgemental, maybe the odour was in the elevator on it’s arrival, left by it’s producer as a parting gift to the next load of Sheeple. In that case RESPECT.
Ding ! again! with the bells, I can read, I know where I’m going and when to get out.
Here I am again, just another human suppository, in the Core.
