Florescent hardhats and vests
stop for children lead on leashes.
All industry enthusiasts and
these men pause for their caprices.
The teacher, rosy, gesticulating
to her charges: flushed soubrette.
The children, rapt, are stargazing.
These men smile and stub cigarettes.
All beams bequeathed befitting
the reveals of plain delight.
The simple chance of meeting
these men of simple might.
