Things Between Us

Downstairs, in the train station, I see my boss standing on the opposite platform, separated from me by two sets of tracks.

When she sees me, she smiles, and I smile back, a big dumb grin at the absurdity of the situation.

Then she waves, and my grin widens, but I feel a little awkward, like I'm somehow impinging on the anonymity we feel we have in public spaces.

By the time I realize I should probably wave back, she's already looking away, and a train on her track slides in between us, blocking my view.
