darker than that

They sewed your future to my fate.
As far as I can be certain,
they're no surgeons.
None of them.

They inserted us into each other.
As I understand it
they're not scientists either. They're

It's a wicked illusion. Together
in primitive darkness
an underground train laid waste
to its passengers,
hearts and all
before we left the station.

We never even moved.
