Lovers in Dangerous Times

They were walking down the street.. you would think that it was just one person.. a copy..a body divided into two equal parts.. the same gestures..walk…signs..glee in the eyes..two hearts beating as one.. holding hands…grocery bags in the other hands.. or was it a messenger bag filled with bags…just a glimpse..they crossed the streets…dress and smart suit..a warm day in April…using the cross-walk …cars stopped.. a guy singing some country song on the radio.. something about holding hands…yours in mine on a fine summer something…

They crossed…looked at each other…smiled…a genuine smile..a smile that commands a stare..that shouts I am here..look at me you single person… a smile that says that they are lucky…would it last forever asks the serpent in the heart of the single man ?

They sat on the brick stairs…a brick lane.. just sitting there.. both of them…smiling..speaking a foreign language…

The bus came…she stood up…he kissed her forehead…she smiled…went up the 2 steps of the bus..swiped her card…sat on a seat behind the driver…waved goodbye and vanished from the scene with her grocery into somewhere…your guess is as good as mine.

    I’ve been meaning to get to your blog for quite a while now, and no I don’t regret having (actually) assigned time on my schedule to do that.

    I like the air of mystery in this one…” your guess is as good as mine”- loved that!:)
