A quiet weekend in our own little world,
an alternate reality glimpsed.
Morning breath and furtive glances,
Comfortable silence and our own plans.
Truths spoken and secrets shared,
with my palms outward and my heart open.
The wind changes direction, I blink and it’s over.
We’re huddled around a pole in the train during the morning rush,
whispering and laughing in a language you don’t understand.
It’s my stop, I turn back and wave casually as I hop off to change lines.
The doors clothes and off he goes.
