I like it when people pat themselves down
to make sure they have
all of their belongings before they leave.
It's even better
when they mutter the words
Spectacles, Testicles, Wallet, and Watch.
I like it when people's faces light up
when they are waiting for a friend,
and finally spot them.
I like it when people get startled
and apologize for it.
Like their fear may have
I like when people look around
and make eye contact with strangers
when the subway slows down
or stops unexpectedly.
I like it when a large group of people witness something strange,
that they are forced
to talk about it
with people they may never see again.
I like it when somebody drops something,
and a stranger chases after them to return it,
even if it's just a mitten.
I like it when someone asks for a light
from a stranger, and they get one.
Even better if the stranger
lights their smoke
I like it when people ask for directions,
and the person giving them
uses large hand gestures.
I like it when crossing guards
protect grown adults.
I like seeing a couple during their honey moon phase.
All over each other and a little bit
I like ti when babies make eye contact with you
as they pass by on their parents back.
I Like when several people stop
to admire a cute dog.
I like it when pedestrians
are nearly hit by a careless driver,
and all stop to talk **** about them
for a moment.
I like it when people casually
sing, hum, or whistle.
I like it when several people
have to gather around a small device
because they all want to see what's happening
I like seeing children I don't know
in the snow
and daydreaming of hot chocolate.
I like catching someone taking a selfie.
I like it when people open their palms to check if it's raining,
even though they can probably see that it is.
I like seeing people reading on the train.
I don't know.
Human's can be cute.
I was inspired by a Tik Tok that was basically listing off things they liked about people. These are some of mine.
