If You Should Meet Me

If you should meet me on the sidewalk
in the city,
would you know me?
Would you recognize my face?
Would my name come to mind for you?
And if you answer yes,
how would you respond?
Would you pass by,
pretending not to notice me?
Or nod and speak a quick hello?
Or stop and chat a while?
Or would you smile a smile so big
and spread your arms all open wide
and take me inside?
If you should meet me on the sidewalk in the city---
What would you do?

if
life walks between
drunk
on
narrow congested roads
and
maniacal drivers
how can you
take it seriously?

and if
god manifets all his
glory
in nature
how much can He have
to spare
on us humans?

and if soulmates ask funnny questions
through beautiful poetry
what do you do
but grin and
keep quite.
