That tall, shapely blond standing at her husband's side
on the station platform, as though he were her last defense
against her instincts, brushes up against him
and looks down at the newspaper he holds open
in front of him, and looks back at the crowd,
her lips firmly restrained. If I should meet her alone
one morning, as I already have, exchanging looks,
if we should meet once more,
we will not talk to one another.
