pork allergy

Fat girl at the counter.
 1
Hides eyes under hair.
 2
 
 
I look at her.
 3
First with repulsion
 4
then regret -
 5
at my base reaction,
 6
at the world's
 7
easy dismissal of people
 8
beyond the pleasant norm.
 9
 
 
I stand expressionless
 10
so I believe -
 11
force facial muscles to produce
 12
a neutral glance
 13
as I extend my hand.
 14
 
 
She hands me my change
 15
minus the obligatory
 16
customer service.
 17
 
 
I exit pissed -
 18
convince myself
 19
a few seconds of
 20
to go sincerity
 21
is a fair exchange
 22
for letting this pig
 23
bother my conscience.
