Word of the Day Poem: Contiguous

The waiting room of a cramped doctor’s office
The bleachers of a college football stadium
A New York subway at 8:30 in the morning

As a group we form a contiguous pair of legs
We become stationary millipedes
Filled with quietly romantic intraconnections
The sides of our legs gently brushing up against each other
Nerve endings excited
Never ending delighted
An undulating, unspoken connection

con·tig·u·ous \ kuhn-tig-yoo-uhs \
1. touching; in contact.
2. in close proximity without actually touching; near.
3. adjacent in time: contiguous events.
