I overheard a man and a woman arguing about which train to get on. I later saw the man get on a train. The woman walked past me crying.

I overheard a two women talking about a simple matter. No one needed to be too concerned. One of the women had cancer and would die within 4 months.

I overheard a child calling out for his mother. The child screamed and screamed. I never saw him find her.

I overheard a man on the phone. He lied 3 times in 3 seconds. He said, "I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine."

    Powerful images which for some reason reminded me of Paul Auster. Excellent drabble.
