a pretty woman smiled at me this morning

(a very pretty woman smiles at me every morning)

(my wife, but on this occasion)

(it wasnt her)

we walked by each other at my mothers building

she was going out

I was going in

and she smiled at me

(this is unusual)

(being both male and a stranger)

(women dont usually smile at me)

so I gave her a gentlemanly nod

and my own “Good morning”

in return

it was the very least I could do

for the smile she gave me
