In A Perfect World

by Chris Sorrenti


wouldn’t leave used tissues in shopping carts
stick gum to bus or subway seats

wouldn’t simply walk on by without saying thank-you
when someone holds a door open for them

wouldn’t wash left over food down the office kitchenette sink
leaving others to unclog the drain

wouldn’t dial wrong numbers
then hang up without apologizing

wouldn’t run yellow lights
when another motorist has been waiting to turn left


but seeing as we don't live in a perfect world
it's up to all of us
to make it as close to perfect as we can
