Playing Frisbee in the street
on a hot, sticky, evening,
two friendly twenty-somethings.
One’s in long-sleeve white tee shirt,
blue synthetic shorts, ball cap;
barefoot, the soles black with dirt.
The other’s taller, dark-haired;
brick-red tee, black shorts, red shoes.
He’s the one who says hello;
the other, catching, just nods.
