Getting On the Subway

It was crowded. Two trains went by out of service. Everyone looked straight ahead while a man further down, perpendicular to the bulk of the crowd, was yelling something . I decided to walk towards him. I’d been thinking about how scared people are now. Nobody is talking but there are ‘crazy people’ yelling all over the place. I didn’t know if he was one of them but I walked towards him, past people with ear buds in, attached to ipods and smart phones listening to whatever they chose instead.
The train came before I got too far along the platform and I joined the rest of them. I don’t know if he got onto another car.

I put my ear buds in and selected the e-book I had downloaded from the library. It is called “Being Mortal”.
