The Banker and the Artist

Gallery 1

Morning train
The car is full
Just one seat left

And the banker sits next to the artist

Shined shoe next to worn sneaker
Pressed pant leg by blue denim
Shirtsleeve to the arm of a sport coat

Shoulders touching, each man ignoring
Concentrating (or acting so)
On his journal

They don’t know each other
That the bank gave to last night’s event
Featured the artist’s work

That a woman has fallen in love
Runs her finger along the bottom
Of a framed print newly hung
In the banker’s bedroom
