Poetry. California Interest. RAPID TRANSIT is a humorous and poignant romp down the rusting tracks of American public transit, filled with haunting and colorful characters—those we wish to embrace, run from, those we see ourselves reflected in. It begs the question: do we ever truly reach our destinations?
