it makes one nervous when the tram is late.
not because one is getting late to reach somewhere,
but because one has to wait amidst strangers.
you keep staring at the screen and the minutes are passing so slow.
there is an occasional shuffling of restless feet, (of your own and others)
the dragging of weary soles,
and awkward pacing that all try to keep to their own boundaries,
lest it make others nervous by stepping into theirs.
