Ten Minutes

You see the same strangers
The neighbor rushing down the stairs
trying to put on her other shoe
The grey-haired jogger
puffing breaths of hot air matching her gait
The woman walking her overweight Yorkie
three steps behind her
The woman whose grinning Bernese Mountain Dog
is walking her
The parka-clad college student
walking past you in the crosswalk
The man who taps the steering wheel impatiently
while staring at the never-ending red light
The woman bundled up in her own grey hair
waiting for the bus to come
The school bus driver who looks past you from the window
as he rounds the corner
The cop you make awkward eye contact with
as he drives the opposite direction

One morning
You wake up late
And these strangers
Are gone
