Passing Through

I am here for a few minutes at the local corner Store

the one by my Knights Of Columbus Council

the obligatory middle aged hausfrau with bifocals stands behind the cash register

a sea of randomly compiled jerseys with high school and college, sports, and corporate logos

as the only names by which I may recognize each of these strangers

in our temporary common meeting place free of eye contact

often I overhear conversations where one friend utters to another

a declarative sentence with a question Mark in the tone of voice
