7:25 
The Train was scheduled for 7:25am
I arrived early
The train was late
Really late
Two hours late
Finally we board, at various points
More than 200 souls
Passing through the state
New York
That’s where it pulls us
We ride
Then it stops
We ride
Then it stops
And so it goes
Eight hours turns to twelve
But finally
We arrive
Into the night, we are thrust
From our train cocoon
Into the New York night
Into the chaos that is New York City
Beautiful chaos
Divinely orchestrated chaos
The train was late
Really late
But I no longer remember
