Elevator People

Ding
The door opens
Who gets off
Will they make me smile?
Cringe?
Or laugh inside

I see them everyday
Talk to them
Small words with some
Real words with others
I never know the whole story
So I fill in the gaps

It’s so easy to be black and white
When you’re holding the pen
or the brush
Good person, bad person
Smart person, dumb person
Gifting gray
to make intresting
those I like
gray like a knife
to make unfairly obtuse
those i don’t

Truth is
I don’t know the whole story
probably never will
I’ll continue sitting here
Waiting for the… ding, ding
So I can make up my own

I should be careful
Perhaps just remember
The Elevator People
Might know how to use
a pen
or a brush
too.
