Following a brief pause, the argument continued once on the train 
and it wasn't long before the swing returned. 
You weren't listening, I wasn't either (I say 
retrospectively in order to keep the peace). 

Eyes diverted from all angles 
Ears pricked at my tone 
Stunned silence surrounded our words. 

I wanted you to accept that sometimes, you are wrong. 
You wanted me to shut up and enjoy myself 
I wanted to go home 
You wanted to start the night again. Resets were becoming our thing. 

Interest waned, chatter started once more 
Ears closed, our words lost in the din. 

The thing about a reset is that sometimes the underlying problem 
remains.
