A nod of acknowledgment is what you’ll likely see. Be it male or female or non-gender wannabe.

Words are not needed. It’s done at first glance. You’ve met with someone kindred. It’s time to do your dance.

It starts with the eyebrows. On both faces, they are raised. That look of recognition. Your eyes reveal a glaze.

A tilt to soothe the neck strain. Your shoulders slump in duress. You arch your back uncomfortably. Non-verbals show it best.

A parting smile cracks your face.

Still, nothing has been said.

It’s just a perchance meeting of two people with noticeably big heads.
