Mesh strapped to back
Time pressed
Feet scurry
Flight approaches
Faces interrupt
Don’t look
Ears plugged
Heaven of voices
Mind dancing
Subway vibrates
Breath to breath
Don’t speak
Foot tapping
Numbers glowing
Head glued
Elevator echoes
Heat radiates
Don’t touch
Screens up
Sudoku down
Eyes shut
Lips pressed
Free fidget
Pass along
Just Don’t
