Begin to rise

Evil-minionby Ethel Twigg20 Apr 2015

The announcer crackles
some inane message
he looks up
straight into her world
and she into his
for a single heartbeat
and they look away
primeval flinching
and dwell for precious seconds
within the realm of possibility
slowly, tentatively
their gaze seek one another again
two shy searchlights
seeking respite
in the hustle and bustle
shy smiles as they find each other
and slowly
they begin to rise
