digicosis studios

subway girl

Your entire day
can blend away
into the passing lights
into the eerie calm
of deep dark tunnels

Everyone tries to ignore each other
ever careful to avoid eye contact
except for her
she always gets on at the same stop
she's never on long
always 3 stops
sometimes just 2
the first time she smiled at you
you almost quit your job
you both want the other to talk first
but you wait
and she waits
for the day you both need to get off
at the same stop...
