my eyes are glued to the backseat

i am in the middle

her mother is in the front

 

they scooch closer together

very slowly

almost an inch every minute

until they are touching

they do not know i am watching them

and if they do, they do not say

 

she takes a peek up to the front seat

where her mothers eyes are drooping

barely open, but focused on the road

she turns toward him

 

he pulls the flimsy pink blanket over him

and she takes him in her hand

moving it slowly, rhythmically up and down

his eyes are closed and he grips the sides of the seats

his knuckles are white

she looks forward and i pretend to be asleep

she does not know i am watching

and if she does, she does not say

 

she removes her hand and his own takes its place

while her head slides under the blanket and begins bobbing up and down

right on top of his lap

his eyes are open and they glance towards me

i quickly close my eyes

he does not know i am watching him

and if he does, he does not say

 

they are finished now

and are cuddling close together

this is rather bold of her

i guess she knows shes already in trouble

for bringing an older boy in the car

so she pushes her luck

 

i glance toward the front seat

where her mother finally tears her eyes from the road

and looks toward the back seat

they pretend they have been sleeping the whole time

i know they haven't

 

she does not know what has just happened

and if she does, she does not say
