Random Act Of Love-Poem

by Samuel De Lemos

I went to the gas station by my house
got out and paid.
Behind me, a husband and wife embraced.
She smiled, he laughed—
I finished pumping gas.
I started my engine.
looked into the vanity mirror
and laughed—
a big tooth grin
picked out the matzah
stuck between my lower teeth
and smiled again.
Happy, full of gas,
driving back home—
A witness to a random
act of love.
