  • I played music without headphones and didn't feel like an asshole.
    Swung from bars.
    Laid across four seats.

    Resting her head on a bag, the Queen of the 1 Train took a short nap.

    At 96th I left to take the express.
    Lots of people.
    Putting in my earbuds I looked for a free seat, but there were none.

    I missed my little subway car.
    I got off at the next stop and took the bus.
