Tuesday in the park

Two homeless ladies hug,
in parting;
their city-park encampment
is being tossed.
This gesture of normality
surprises me,
though it shouldn’t.
I am sure their lives
are as filled with banality
as mine.
This is simply
Tuesday.
Their faces carry the weight
of a life lived rough
and I feel sorry.
Not for them, though,
(this is just their Tuesday)
but for those who first loved them
and may still worry
about this Tuesday.
