Never said a word to him,
but I learned as I observed.
Some noticed he was too slim.
Tall boots clanked as he sauntered.
He worked the room lady-like,
However, he wanted to be she.
Whispers, stares, would not break might,
Then she locked eyes on me.
Her name was Georgia, we talked.
A simple cup of coffee, black,
Our sigh of relief, not shock.
Others drank in the exchange, taken-aback.
She left and I dared them,
To say a word or question.
Things changed forever right then,
Blew their minds with life’s lesson.
