Over and Out

Giant black hoops in stretched earlobes

attached to a fresh, sweet face;

sharp haircut, light goatee.

Behind the counter, he wipes and paces.

 

It’s a slow night, end of shift;

leaving, he augments his outfit

with clear-framed mirrored shades,

backward ball cap. Leaves, walks, fades.
