Team Colors

Three of you squeeze into a seat for a cozy two,
Cocooned by your chatter from the texting commuters
(And the occasional cycling enthusiast)
On your way to tonight's game.
Even the backs of your heads look young,
And you in the window seat are so careful
To rest your arm not across the one-and-a-half shoulders
As you huddle together now
On your way to the game.

A Simple, Five-Step Trick

Here's a trick to try out
The next time you have a free minute:

Step One:
Stand where you find yourself.

Step Two:
Take a good look around.

Step Three:
Take a deep breath and slowly let it out.

Step Four:
Using whatever form of locomotion you prefer (legs, wheelchair, etc.), and while remaining perfectly still (this is the tricky part), push against the world until it begins to move past you.

Step Five:
Stop pushing when you find yourself where you need to be.

And have a care to be considerate of others.
