Heroic Enough

I don’t want to do epic right now –
no grandiose gestures, or huge
heroic deeds with medals and laurels,
recognition and media coverage.

To love without agenda, or hope
of return, or condition, is heroic enough.
Forget the epic. Just give me a kind
smile and patient drivers on my commute.
