Quality Human Beings.


Yesterday,
I particularly noticed
the quality of humans
around me.


Like your boss who wakes up at 5 a.m.
to make you all cookies.

Like friends who come bright and early
to pick you up.

Like coworkers who make you want to
give them your clementines
because they are so grateful
when you do.

Like shopping with a friend
who throws things that she tried on
over the fitting room wall to you
and then says,
"That looks better on you."

Like friends
that are still your friends
after years,
and take you on
not-really-dates-that-are-kind-of-dates
and buy you dinner.

Like people you see at a party
that you don't know very well
but who laugh at your jokes.
And you start to think about
wanting to get to know them better.

Like the party host
who walks around
passing out food,
and you can't help but look at her
in awe.

Like people who ask,
"How have you been?"
and you can hear in their voice
how much they want to know the answer.

Like friends who drive you home
every time
and sit in the car with you
outside of your house
because you want to keep talking.

Like roommates
who you love to live with
because they are always so kind
to each other.

It was almost too good.
