Error

A mere Pepsi bottle
In a corner of the train
Hid a night of secrets
An error of judgment
Caused by youth’s folly
Lay in its dark contents
That would blur the margin
Between life and death.

(In an incident which happened recently in the train in which I was traveling a young man, having been sipping liquor for quite some time from a Pepsi bottle, lost his balance and fell into the space between the train and the platform. His death was instantaneous.)
