good writing:

"Swaying on the district line going West along the Thames, a large man with skin greyed through years of smoking covers a great yawn with a large hand softened by white hair. Opposite, three seats along, a female tourist with yoghurty skin, suddenly finds herself letting out a great sigh of tiredness, too. Her mouth opens and before she has time to realise what's happening, her yawn swallows up the sweaty metro air, a nod of communication that she's not aware of. And then I, too, am wide-mouthed, my jaw stretching apart, unlocking a slightly ecstatic feeling I'd rather wasn't public, a fitting end to the silent conversation we've shared. Who followed? I gave up looking, so struck by the battle of the will of the yawn defeating the tired heart of the inner city."
