Points of Departure

Side by side

They moved off together

On the green signal

Paced perfectly

From beneath the shadow

Into the low morning sun


Tempo steadily climbing


Flicks of stanchion shadows passed faster

In tandem

The lines gradually diverged


Stretched them apart

She waved

He turned to his phone
