Attention

In his thirties, lean, not skinny,

he’s on the porch in plain white tee,

sneakers, shorts, cap, bending

over, tending plants carefully.

 

He gives a non-committal wave,

doesn’t know that I’m craving

the kind of attention he’s giving the plants,

a bit of romance, then a bedroom dance.
