While Sitting At the Bus Stop, (An Overheard Poem)

A moment can change everything
A word- or one that's missing
It can change the thermostat
And where warmth was
Now rules the cold
It is childish
Adults set their feelings aside
Make social niceties
And pretend that they are fine
And maybe that's what she'll do tonight
Make sure certain things remain
Make sure her mask stays fixed in place
Maybe she'll finally let him in
A little bit less
Is she being emotional
Probably and maybe he should stop
Maybe emotions should have no place
But that's a bit too late
And now the investment's made
Now it's too late
And she has to deal
Deal with the change
And the moment and the words
