small lives

accidental glimpses
of moments not mine
a glance into tv-lit living room windows
conversations half heard from passers by
freeze-framed arm-waving distant arguments
a fractious child crying and mother’s strained calm
small snippets collected
like a photo mosaic
building a picture
of other lives
filed in my memory
marked miscellaneous
so many people
just passing each other
me in my small life
and you there in yours
