Tight Connections

Crowded airports and delays are 
the order of the day. 
Connection dreams will fade in future memories, but 
today relies on trust 
and serendipity. 
Adventure awaits. 
Sailing smooth and soaring, 
bobble-headed seatmates 
in this tubular train, 
sarcastic crew, 
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.
