Scribbling on trains

How many poets are there
writing on commuter trains?
Does every carriage contain someone
scribbling in a notebook
or their phone?
Each one of us reflecting
our own reality to a world
much too busy to look.
Each one sharing something,
And sometimes peering over
another's shoulder
and wondering!
Each one adopting rules
specific to writing on trains
Like some strange masonic rite!
Don't notice mine
and I'll pretend I don't see yours.
