Common decency

You say you are often


by all
the unkindness
you see in the world.

But to the boy
who held
the lift doors


for you

while you fumbled around
for your keys
and hollered for your husband
who was picking leaves off
his freshly polished wrx,

you did not even have
the decency
to thank him
for waiting.
