The German model has a flight from Madrid to London in 45 minutes. The dad of the year shadow boxes his 3 sons on the train platform heading towards home. A beautiful couple stands out in the cold while waiting for a cab. The poet breathes deeply, smiles, and laughs with his old friend as they wait for the check.
The plane comes.
The train comes.
The cab comes and so does the check, and the moments close out. Each minute drips like ink from the present onto a page of the past, forming a line like an unending ellipses.
