Drop

Dropped my bag on the hard subway seat,

Dropped my head on his round shoulder bone,

Covered with the sweatshirt he had earlier got,

His body felt soft and warm.

Dropped my lids on my cheeks,

Felt the subway rock me to sleep,

Felt his breath deepen when I moved,

When the lurch of the train brought us close.
