a few words about attention

There is an angry lady talking with her ex-husband on the phone.

I lost the count of how many times
she said “talk to my lawer”, or used an F word.

and nobody cared about her bills, and prescribed medication that she was yelling into the air of a subway car.

Everybody were hiding behind the newspapers, or electronic book readers.

Suddenly, one big man loudly sneezed, and another big man told him “Gezuntheit!”,
then they both submerged into their reading.

(the train was doing its way to the first stop)

Meanwhile that woman finished the verbal exchange with her ex, and dissolved into the poker game
on her smartphone.

“people can switch their attention with a speed of browsing pages of a morning  newspaper”, I thought to myself.

(I had a craving for a good crunchy hot dog with a sauerkraut, fried onions, and mustard.)
