Travel, Subways and Love

I’ve seen subways

I’ve seen subways that were more of an attraction (Paris)

I’ve seen subways that were a bit stinky (Buenos Aires)

I’ve seen subways that were uncrowded (Athens)

I’ve seen subways in which one line

Several routes align (Brussels)

I’ve lived in a city

Where subways were not needed (Geneva)

But I’ve never seen a subway

That had a lot of love to say.

Each station in the subway of São Paulo

There is a couple in love,

Kissing each other wholehearted,

Making promises of love.
