Morning Commute

These Brooklyn women
     have been talking over each other
          for the last five stops on the Q—

how do they know when
     to give and take in the conversation?

There's no silence till they
     both check their phones
          on the Manhattan bridge.

It's annoying.
     But sublime too.

Their rhythm and inflection
     continually unfold like
          waves from the shore...
during a storm.
