Community Talk

03 Aug

Half a glance and half a smile
A need and a fear on a middle ground
Strangers trying to talk
A full lone sentence is madness
Total silence is denial
that will grow into an explosion

Finally a voice is raised
Several smiles have made it safe
Passengers become family
The cash office is made into a home
Eyes can meet
No one could do this alone

The fence is measured with lines spoken
Sometimes by a mental record of time
Group sense that ends the talk
Boundaries are needed for banter
Before familiarity breeds contempt
Only so much can be shared in a bus
She will not pay your fare
You must alight at your own stop
