I watched a man run his hand
up and down his girlfriend’s spine
like a keyboard to keep her warm
as they waited for the bus downtown,
she smiled without looking at him
and he knew it so he pulled her close.

And I thought about them hours later
how I hoped they were good to each other
and knew just how lucky they were
because there’s not enough of
that kind of love around anymore.
