Sleeping Up

Sleeping Up
She was standing by the stairs at the Canal Street subway station—a woman in her late 30s. She wore grey/white/black sneakers, jeans and a grey T shirt with some gold like words in front. The woman closed her eyes. After a few minutes, she shook herself. No train was coming, so she closed her eyes again. This time her eyes did not open right away. The J train arrived and slowly she woke up.
There were some rowdy school girls when she got on the J, about 6 or 7 of them. They were hitting each other and laughing. The woman, who was holding on to the pole, turned around. Stop that, she shouted. The look in her eyes was angry. People looked at her and said nothing.
