Watching Lovers

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

lays her head on his shoulder and sleeps

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

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.
