Strangers

Sondrous wonder.

A stranger in public
sitting across from you
whom you silently mock
for their ugly coat
or their awful makeup
or misbehaving child
has been to hell
and back,
been torn up
by their fears,
and had their heart
shattered,
and yet that depth
does not preclude
their title as
a stranger in public.
