anticipatory
anxious
benign
confused
dazed
excited
happy
hopeful
humane
malevolent
sad
tired
wary
faces
at the airport
last night
but
which one
of them,
my love,
was
you?

Peter, YES!, very, very cool. You've captured the moment perfectly. Thin slicing to just the faces. Boffo!

Peter, the longing here is so evident. Aren't we all looking for the faces of our "love," whether at the airport or on any city street? I love this and can say I've felt the same way too many times.
