Radiance

Radiance

This morning

The Big Issue seller

on New Walk

tells me I’m looking as radiant

as ever

and that he bet everyone

said that.

No.

It’s his line

But a kind one, a compliment,

given with charm,

not sleaze.

I try on that radiance,

his gift

then: 35 emails

files of to dos not done

general office jabber

It lasts,

at the most,

twenty-three minutes.
