murky sky smudges dark cloud black against faded sky
load roar - bus (gentle calm the engine sound plows)

rumble deep murmurs through high-pitched windows
conversations all-a-bubble-creaking
train fixtures move under chatter of passengers

phones light with
buzz-sound quick-tones world IS closer
- for a moment - fleckle fleckle screen-light

person on other end in view in earshot
plain sight of room
