The Evening Before Thanksgiving

Sadie was at the grocery

And as she checked out

Over scans of cracker boxes

And weighing grapefruit

They began to talk

About how busy his day had been

When he said to her in passing,

“You will have love

Like you never knew”

Sadie heard it as a whisper

Of something she had

Never heard before

And as she walked out

Into the dark and busy parking lot

Sadie wondered if it could be true.
