waiting




almost 
every morning
 when
 i switch at 72nd

this 
young woman 
is 
also
waiting for the express

at 42nd her friend gets on 
they sit together sipping talking checking their mobiles

they stay on after i get off at park place

at first 
i imagined
 they worked for an internet startup

more recently 
i decided
 they were teachers in/at a brooklyn school

when i am not reading
i am wondering
who are these people
where do they go 
so early
 in
 the morning

  3. I notice the odd person on a regular basis during morning commutes, but mine is on foot most days.

  4. I would be doing the same as you, I wonder what and where people are off too and why. ;-) Keep us posted if you find out.

  6. I think that it's wonderful that in a city of millions of people, you can see the same person at the same time each day! :-)
