On the Green Line, Washington Metro

At one end of the car:
he rests his arm
on the other man’s shoulders,
fingers brushing arm as they both read.
One points to a page in his book.
Both smile and laugh.

Seat in front of me:
she leans back into his lap,
teasing him, not letting him see
what is on her phone.
But then she does.
Both smile and laugh.
