on a day like any other
but running late – something I
never do – going by
plane instead of train – something
I could not afford to do – on a day
I really would have liked to stay
I met a man who missed
his plane and was in the line
next to mine
how very polite we were – each
of us to the other
discussing all the little
mundane, inane things as
strangers are want
to do – hiding the thoughts deep
in our minds – thoughts that
could turn an ocean to steam
