Accidentally touch someone else’s fingers while going for the hand rail on the bus. Awkwardly side step to the same direction and do it a second time. Press the cross walk button more times than you know you need to. Tune in and out of conversations happening nearby. Pretend not to be listening. Pick a spot and watch the people who pass by. Wonder about their past, their future.

Maybe make eye contact, maybe don’t.
