Start Here

Start here, I tell myself.

Practice not making a snappy retort

when corrected by a know-it-all man

falsely telling me I’ve broken

a parking space law. 

Just smile and wish him a happy holiday.

In this way I will have taken the first step

in the long journey to sainthood

and , at the same time, I will probably

have succeeded in annoying the devil out of him.
