We’re riding together but sit worlds apart.
The stockbroker, the mother, the hobo living in separate realities, yet riding in the same car.
The A Train zips from beaches to hoods to ground zero.
Our liberal metropolis is a kingdom of progressive “niceties”.
The A Train is a silver chariot carrying us through our politely segregated city.
