Once again, don’t let anyone tell you that words aren’t powerful.

Writer Jane Marla Robbins found herself short $4 in cash at the DMV earlier this year — you know, after she’d waited an hour just to get to the window.

So, out of sheer desperation, she asked whether the clerk would accept a book of poetry to make up the difference.

And to her great surprise, the clerk said yes.

Robbins shares her miraculous moment in a short piece in the Los Angeles Times that should restore your faith in humanity, even if for just a few minutes.
