New York City
Just before noon on the M train from Brooklyn Tuesday March 14 You wore red and read a white paperback Raven hair tumbling over your shoulders I wore a gray cap and read The God of Small Things You exited at Broadway-Lafayette Pausing just before the doors opened To turn to me and say you loved Roy's novel I smiled and agreed Too captivated by you to say more Then the doors were open and you were gone And I rode the rest of my way Deeply regretting not exiting with you And thinking how life turns on such momentous moments I will be finished the novel imminently And would absolutely love to discuss it with you Let's give the sliding doors another try
