Spring in Step

When the doors slide open, spring walks in,

in skinny cutoff jeans rolled up

to show tattoo red, yellow, and green

on right calf hairy and fit,

brown suede shoes in lieu of trainers,

sleeveless vest over checked gingham shirt,

floppy brown hair over mirrored shades,

and when he passes and  smiles “hello,”

his very energy seems to flirt

with sunshine, youth, and whoever’s near.
