that knowing glance

will you remember the moment
we shared today on the library steps?
you exiting while I was hurrying in
our eyes briefly syncing as we each maneuvered
to avoid a collision with the (obvious to us)
"homeless" couple, bickering on their way to the sidewalk

we exchanged that knowing glance,
a visual smirk,
that on the surface reflected a bit
of “Oh well, what can you do?”
but actually obscured
our shared, hidden,
smugly arrogant agreement
that we are glad we “know” we are oh,
so much better than “them”
