Scenes from the bus stop - chapter 72. Two guys walk by and cross the parking lot. I overhear one yell at the other, "She's trying to justify something that's wrong!" He points a finger angrily. I go back to reading my book until a person next to me yells into his cell phone, "Christian, look they're fighting!" I can't figure out how the person on the other end of the line is going to look at anything here. But sure enough, the two guys are now on the other side of the parking lot and swinging fists at each other. They got only a few hits in before walking off again.

This reminds me of a line from the poem "Urban Pod on a Hill" in David Perry's Range Finder. I think it went, "Two guys, smacking a third."
