Marlena, seat 3


Marlena, seat 3


She’s knitting a shawl for her

grandchild. Most times, I’m silent

on the ride home from midtown,

but the woman, seat 3, needs a kind

ear to listen.


She says he’s preemie, with a

promise of obstacles, facing his

daily routines.


She’s clacking her needles, knit one

and pearl two. Her granddaughter will

wrap him up warmly in it, when she

brings him back home from the hospital.


I’m glad that I finally exchanged a few

words with her. Her name is Marlena.
