unlikely

these silent ones they may be chosen
 they patronize the same magazine
stand or cafe rocking back and forth on heels
 reading headlines

it would not take an act of war
to draw their thoughts in from concerns
 of business or home

they may hold your hand a moment longer than others
to let you know they understand
what you are going through

sometimes that's all it takes
to realize you are not alone and
someone gives a damn
