The train of thought,
my tickets of insight
a quiet of the sleepers
the tranquillity of this nothing.
Then the carriage breaks out
I sit inside a chaos, we commuters
right alongside a somewhat crazy
Absolute Disaster who is interested his own opinion.
I experience true peace
Not apart, nor together.
Signals are red but each thing will change.
