View from the Back Seat
So strange seeing intimacies
from the back seat
like being dropped unseen
into someone’s bedroom.
Neck massages for the driver,
driver’s hand reaching
over to the passenger seat doing
whatever unseen tenderness,
maybe just a hand on a knee.
A moment of gentle affection,
shining in its simplicity

This is how people feel at baseball games sitting behind the couple on the Jumbotron.
Amy, thanks, glad it resonated
Love this perspective!
I agree with Nancy. I love the perspective. How many little moments like this do we experience every day?
It’s all about paying attention
I agree with the others–great perspective, well-detailed.
as a voyeur myself, I love your poem
smiles you get the best stuff eavesdropping
echo the comments above– well drawn scene
I am really smiling and loving it!
Bev, makes me smile too
