Out of the packed train comes a horizontal tree, pine
needles poking through tight
plastic wrap. She’s wearing
a raincoat and a frown, the blue spruce
hugged in her strong arms like a Roman battering ram.
Commuters step aside, all sighs and clucks.
This woman loves someone enough
to bring them Christmas on the subway, wrestle
a tree twice her height through tongue-
sucking rush-hour crowds.
The sharp holiday
scent of pine enlivens the last car of the C train,
trails her to the 50th Street escalator,
where she juggles the pungent
tree on her hip, ascending.
