A heart restored


Today I read
a stable genius
plans to make 
smaller nuclear weapons
to be more usable
so my head 
was low 
when I boarded
the souless train
I slowly drained
a tasteless coffee
I stared at a WiFi 
engaged screen
I waited for my station
Coat on
Rucksack on
Stick in hand
I gazed at the door
it opened
I raised my head
a hand held out
to help me off
I hesitated at first
then took it 
with gratitude
the kindness extended
warmed my soul
this January day
my head was lifted
a day transformed

a heart restored
