I sat on the subway, someone on either side of me. A man was standing in front of me holding onto the pole. I tried a math problem. What has to be true if a/b>c/d? I scribbled my thoughts and checked my answer. Wrong. I leaned my head back against the window so I was watching the skyline pass over me upside down. The spokes from Williamsburg bridge ran by and I closed my eyes to think about nothing.
