Sometimes a perfect day is full of stress,
Fatigue and aches, chagrin and too-few meals,
And traffic jams that snare the streets downtown,
Adrenalin makes weariness surreal,
To see two strangers see and greet each other,
With shibboleths that makes the other smile,
And then, embracing, call each other brother-
Moments like this delight as they beguile.
For when unlikely things become the norm,
Preposterous becomes a possibility.
Facilitated frolics can transform
A person suffering from invisibility.
To be amidst a crowd of introverts
Can be pleasure, even when it hurts.
