NaPoWriMo Day 2- Second Class Sleeper to Pune

blue plastic seats
thin sheets
best sleep
lulled away to pune
on a second class sleeper

garam garam chai withsugarwithoutsugar

ek chai withsugar

and what the hell is chickenlollipop?

must wake for 4am arrival in pune
there won’t be an announcement
will the train even fully stop?

never thought sleep could be this sweet
with arm cautiously linked through purse
feet hanging off the edge

alarm set for 4
when we will be born
kicking and pushing
each eager to be the firstborn
train doors miraculously spreading
to accommodate all this
and the afterbirth of luggage
