The Gulf - Poem by Bill Grace

With wife not with me
Strong willed and beautiful
Having known me as customer a long time
Intamacy enough to earn a playful scorn
We both paused and took each other in - if only for a moment
Looked across that vast gulf of age, income, education,
Our shade of skin
And realized the gulf that divided us was vastly more
Than a counter at McDonalds.
