Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

One morning
a man decides
today’s the day and leaps
on to BART barefooted
just as the doors close
behind him.

Like an angel on a train,
he is dispatched
with the rest of
the rush hour chattel
into the great unknown
and disappears
beneath the bay.

With so little evidence
invention is the only anecdote
to wonder.
