songs for sitting on BART after work, waiting for the 16th street stop. 15 minutes ago, the stop was just three stops away.
the teenager standing next to me had a medium soda in her lackadaisical, manicured hand.
too gently, i think cynically. far too lightly for my taste.
minutes later, hands fanning at my blouse and pants. exasperated apologies matching honest eyes that, in my eyes, contrast her flaccid hands.
i don't mind, i tell her. it's fine, it really, really is.
i hate Tinder anyways, i think.
for twenty more minutes I'll stand on the stalled BART car, covered in Orange Crush. i'll cancel my Tinder date, and i'll exit the train to find a taco instead.
a playlist for: submitting to what you hate (flaccid hands), recognizing the improbability of the everyday (who still drinks Orange Crush), taking a chance (wearing white on public transportation), and deciding to sing the lyrics down to the sidewalk on the way home (Erasure rocks).
