Watching You Read
I wish that I could stop
staring at the way
you stare at your book.
And I wish
I knew what you were reading
and I wish
I knew who you were.
I'm sure you're an interesting person,
and I'm sure you're into laying
in a resting position with another person.
Can I tell you something?
I can't stop staring at your side of the train.
Can you tell me something?
That you can't stop thinking the same.

The last stanza was everything! Incredible movement throughout this poem and there's something so universal about connecting with a complete stranger via public transportation

I agree! the last stanza. on point. loved this! I have a problem staring at certain people on the train, so this made me feel a lot better.
