Poem of the Week: "25th High School Reunion," by Linda Pastan

Here's another poem I found in the Good Poems, American Places anthology.  Lately, I've found that time has really mellowed out everyone I knew in high school, myself included.  When I run into people I didn't much care for as a teenager, I'm amazed to find that we can have a civil conversation that doesn't feel like an invisible race.  It seems that real life has turned us all into human beings again.  This poem shares that exact sentiment.  I love the last three lines.
