In the subway, a group of teenagers comes in. A white girl followed by seven black teenagers. She goes toward a seat on her right as she enters. They go the other way. At first she tries to call them up, but then she just joins them and goes to seat next to one of the kids. She has a blond pony tail and he plays with it. I stop looking for a brief time. When I raise my head again, she has spread her legs on the seat and one kid takes one of her sandal off her foot and cleans it. All is done very naturally as if people cleaned each other shoes on the subway all the time. He puts the shoe back with care, slowly slipping it on her foot. She does not seem to notice any of this.
