There has to be a space between the train and the platform.  Otherwise, there would be a lot of grinding and friction.  But not surprisingly, there are plenty of folk that don’t grasp basic physics.  You need to step on solid matter rather than air.  That is, at least, if you want to avoid falling down.  They now have to post signs warning us of this imminent, obvious danger.  They implore us to watch the gap between the train and the platform.  Apparently, many of us still believe we can fly.  Disney flicks aside, I generally encourage fools to dream and provide my entertainment.


I watch the folly

the careless, disdain for science

trying to land on air


Ah, such brazen disregard

It always inspires me
