Watching Lovers


I watch them on trains
using each others' bodies for comfort;

She,
lays her head on his shoulder and sleeps

He,
finds in the curve of her waist a place to
warm his hand

They,
wake slowly, lazily from a long kiss.

I watch them in restaurants longing
for each others' faces from behind their
tall menus.

I watch them in parks,
                          walking long paths,
                                           rhyming their footsteps,
                                                             winged with future.
