Light brown hair, light beard, and glasses,
cute rather than handsome, dressed simply
in greenish-brown tee, jeans, and sneakers,
beaded chain necklace with rings suspended from it.
Engaged in animated conversation with a
female friend, they sit facing each other
at opposite ends of the sofa. They laugh,
he talks with his hands. In a sudden burst
of exuberance, he screeches, rocks backward,
laughing hard, raises both hands to his mouth.
