Who's calling?

Sometimes the call comes out and you just feel the need to respond
In the moment
And so you do
A dropped apple in the grocery store
A wayward sock in the laundry
An assisted walker about to board the bus

A few weeks ago assisting a man with his automated book checkout at the library
Or, as some of us like to call it, 'the liberry'
(And just for the took three tries to override 'liberry' from 'liberty'...)

And sometimes you just nod in knowing that somewhere sometime someone
Will look out for you
When you're short a quarter for the bus and you haven't enabled your Tap function
And it's the last bus from downtown and after that you're more or less helpless
A bit Blanche DuBois dependent on the kindness of strangers
