No Wasted Motion

In observing the care he took 
when simply crossing his legs
among others on the subway

how relaxed he was as he took
no more space than needed
and then remained still and at ease
till his stop then
rose into the crowd and was at once

I was moved for 
I’d never seen 
such simplicity

No wasted motion 

How un-American it seemed
