When You Said Hi


Yesterday when you told me hi
and flashed at me
that hundred watt smile
it did catch me by surprise.

Into momentary disequilibrium
I was suddenly thrown
because for reason unknown
you were speaking to me!

I thought, “Could this be? ”
After months of passing me by
perhaps you finally think
I’m worth your time.

As I recovered from my shock attack
and said to you hi back
my subconscious said “Yes! ”
You would make a fine new friend.

But it all made sense when you spoke again;
all you wanted was to borrow my pen.
