A Conversation I Shouldn’T Have Heard

Life stories

November 10, 2019

I sat
In the backseat of a shared
Uber ride sliding through the bright lights
flickering the on the button of Times Square
as the woman in the front seat
called her dad to say:
“I’m going to London! I got the job!”
Tears poured out of her
shrieks poured out of him
“Yes!” “I know!”
“Dad, I can’t believe it!”
Silent and shook
I felt special being there
for the kind of life mess
of a moment that happens once
in a while. Oh please,
I just want it to happen
more.
