Off the Cuff

They exchanged familiar pleasantries
Over the transaction and commented
On the fine weather. Whenever

The weather’s just perfect, he said,
You know there’s a storm coming,
And the store clerk chuckled, yes,

And shook her head and wished him
A nice day, and he hopped out
Into the sun, wondering

If what he’d just said had any truth,
And would there be a storm coming,
Or just several more days like today.
