I've been thinking about the way when you walk down a crowded aisle people pull in their legs to let you by Or how strangers still say bless you when someone sneezes a leftover from the Bubonic plague Don't die we are saying And sometimes when you spill lemons from your grocery bag someone else will help you pick them up Mostly we don't want to harm each other We want to be handed our cup of coffee hot and to say thank you to the person handing it To smile at them and for them to smile back For the waitress to call us honey when she sets down the bowl of clam chowder and for the driver in the red pick-up truck to let us pass We have so little of each other now So far from tribe and fire Only these brief moments of exchange What if they are the true dwelling of the holy these fleeting temples we make together when we say Here have my seat Go ahead you first I like your hat Danusha Laméris Be kind Meme
