The Pattern

He could  be in an ad for Macy’s,

in striped tee, pale blue and white,

khaki shorts and sneakers, red lace-ups,

clear-skinned, clean-shaven, collegiate type.

 

Off the rack, but everything fits;

he could’ve been the pattern for it.

He doesn’t know, he’s so effortlessly cool,

that he’s an exception, not the rule.
