Running Through Crowds

Running through a crowd
pushing past people
framed like photographs
still shots
of faces
arms
necks
as they crane in your direction
looking to see
what all the fuss is about.

And you said
this wouldn’t be a big deal
and you said
that this would be quick
and you meant both of those things
without ever knowing what it was
that they meant.

“Hey”
I’ll say
when you get shy
back off your previous boasts
“these things happen.”
