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.
