From All strangers who smile

Extract from a poem from Heres and Nows by David Henschel. No commentary necessary.

I know nothing more
Surely of the present
Than a stranger’s
Unexpected smile.

The past stays in
Future attends
Corner and antechamber
Of the mind

But the smile
From nowhere out of nothing
Flies like that sparrow from dark to dark
