Small Stone for March 4th

At the grocery store an elderly couple get out of the car next to me.
He is wearing shorts pulled too high and tennis shoes.
She sports slacks, sweater and a purse fallen halfway off her shoulder.
I beam a smile to them and say hello.
They look at each other confused, surprised - and then shyly smile back.
Hello.
