Getting Ideas

Walking shirtless down 9th Street

wearing just black shorts and shoes,

in shape, but not model-lean,

chest and shoulders adorned with tattoos.


Getting in his exercise late,

the heat having been too much to take.

I wonder what he’s doing next–

I have some ideas to suggest.

Scorching afternoon,

but he appears chill and crisp–

skinny jeans rolled just

below knees and espadrilles,

button-up white shirt;

he’s tall and slender,

with nicely-coiffed dark-blond hair.

Tall, broad-shouldered, sturdily built,

in purple tee and cut-off shorts, bright green,

could get away with even a kilt;

hanging between classes, shooting the breeze.


Hair brown with highlighted blond fringe,

eyebrow piercing and earrings.

In regard to my types, he’s out of range,

but with incentive, I could change.
