It was crowded. Two trains went by, out of service. Everyone looked straight ahead while a man further down facing perpendicular to the bulk of the crowd was yelling something political.
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 passed all people with earbuds in, attached to iPods and smartphones listening to what they chose instead of this man yelling.
The train came before I got too far along the platform and I joined the throng getting on the train. I don’t know if he got on to another car. I put my earbuds in and selected the e-book I had downloaded from the library. It is called “Mortality”.
