How Many Faces?


Had been out
the whole morning
quite different
from the usual.

I saw a guy
in his late fifties
medium built
agile and alert
a contractor
into construction.

On my way
dropped in at the solicitors
a burly figure, well read
polite and gentle
senior in his seventies .

Had to go the bank
where I met the Manager,
petite and unassuming
a smile lights up his face
that makes for the
rest of deficiencies.

Next I go to a mobile shop
the owner rounded,
with a thin moustache,
little or no hair in the head,
incredibly short sitting
on a tall stool.

Back home, I rest awhile
the day glides through
the visual impacts
of those I encountered
make me wonder
how many different faces
there could be?
