picture this –


we are

silent on an

escalator in bad

fluorescent lighting

wearing out our

mouths with

to-do lists or

sips of cold

coffee I am

staring at the

other faces that

are like melting

butter and thinking how

easy it could be

just to step left instead

of right blink three

times instead of four

and just as I am busy

imagining the scene I’d

like to make but won’t

his hand moves to

my waist as

preprogrammed as the

rest and I am smiling

like a fool
