Cardigan

On the sofa in jeans and cardigan

loosely buttoned over purple shirt,

low-cut canvas sneakers, navy Converse;

slender, blue-eyed, not a model but handsome.

 

With a friend, having a casual chat

at the coffeehouse on a sunny Saturday,

legs crossed, long-fingered hands; punctuating

his narrative with a quiet laugh.

 

Can’t hear the secrets he has to tell,

but when he smiles, I smile as well.
