courtesy

June 11, 2012 § 3 Comments

it is, after all,
common courtesy to
hold open a door

for whoever is wanting
out or in
even if it is your most
persistent terror
or your greatest joy

sometimes all three of you
may find yourself jammed
in the entry

elbowing ribs
avoiding eyes
and grumbling uneasy
greetings
