Smoke

Kid in the front yard talking to his friend,

a little past boys, but not quite men;

might’ve been working on the motorbike,

analyzing girls they like.

 

Skinny in jeans, black tee, high tops,

he finishes a cigarette, casts butt off.

With a smirk more than wink, a squint, one-eyed,

like he just offered some keen insight.
