Once, I saw an almost-man throw his head back
at I know not what. But, still,
the others around him
began to smile too
My lips part, and I speak to him.
Once, I saw a girl in a blue raincoat
standing in the park.
were planted in the muddy ground,
and she held a sun in her hands.
I walk up, and talk with her.
Neither of them seem alarmed
at the way I am explicitly smiling.
