Some People

A poem
by Chris Hibbard

Some People

Some People

Some people
To touch them
is to invade them

Some people
To stand indifferent
Is to beckon them nearer

Some people
to cry at their feet
Is to invite a restraining order

Some people
To open their front door
Is to summon a cyclone

Some people
To stand out in a crowd
Is to splinter their skin

Some people
To burn down a house
Is to light the way

Some people
To sing out of tune
Is to make true believers

Some people
To cook them breakfast
Is to channel Zen miracles

Some people
To write them a poem
Is absolutely useless
