Crowded airports and delays are
the order of the day.
Connection dreams will fade in future memories, but
today relies on trust
Sailing smooth and soaring,
in this tubular train,
and passengers poised to pounce
when the doors open at the gate.
Miracle disguised as frustrations —
one hundred years ago it took
six month to cross the Atlantic.
On the ground safely in 20 minutes;
the mad rush awaits.
Strangers connected in space and time.
