Diplomat

He was there malling with his family
fresh from a European tour of duty
Yes, the diplomat – ex-activist, ex-bum –
is sporting a goatee
A thing or two one learns certainly
in rounds of cocktail party.
He flashed a smile; he recognized you finally:
You look so gaunt; how’s the family?
We parted ways as it had always been
That things like this comes like happenstance –
He, pushing for a regime militants denounce
I, loose coin rolling on the market ground.
