From Chaos

In chaos
they ran against the side of the train
pushing and holding each other up
as the metal beast left its station
they flocked to it in full
pushing up over one another like living hills
until the startling realization
comes across those on the bottom
only one of them will make it.

And quickly
from chaos comes order
wherein the conscious decision
that the victory of one
is the victory of all
takes over.
And a great wave of bodies
offers forth the chosen vessel
as though pre-ordained
and delivered
without so much as a second thought.
