Separated by thin walls and still practically strangers.
But once in a while, we share glimpses of our lives with each other.
I hear the booms coming from your speakers
and sometimes feel connected to you because of our tastes in music.
You hear me watching trashy movies and reality television.
sometimes we smile knowingly at each other right by the elevator.
But most of all I’m intrigued by how we can know each other’s stories
and share glimpses of each other’s lives and never have to speak.
