To the End

In the windows of the train
as it passes
the people in profile sit
heads bowed
attention fixed
on the phones in their hands
like a congregation
prayer books in hand
reading along
as the pastor speaks the devotional
all fully rapt and waiting
to recite their part
“And also with you,”
as at last they reach
the terminal station
