To the guy on the ferry

I know that business is business
And gadgets are great
And at times we want to unplug
And be
In our own little bubble
iPod in ears
Blackberry in hand
Eyes on e-mail
Thoughts not here
Satchel strewn on the seat between us
Securing you space
Blocking me out.

But I hope you'll tune in
And notice
The world around you
So next time you can
Pick up your bag
And offer that space
To that smoldering brunette
Who would gladly have sat
In that seat
Next to me.
