warmth

he got into my car
and immediately
after ‘thank you’, offered
did I want to discuss
literature
why yes, actually
I would love to, in fact
I am trying to finish my novel(s)

he had been shoveling driveways
he said
and he was so happy
telling me how
he had earned 30 bucks
sopping wet and no coat
he said
it was a really good day

he could not open the door
and I reached to unlock it
on my side, ‘it is
an old, weird car, I must
unlock it on the door’
he said
‘oh, it is
a beautiful car’
