Throwback Thinker

I guess you’d call him handsome

in a Seventies kind of way,

with wavy blond hair, not

long, but trending that way;

smooth, angular-featured face;

broad, masculine shoulders

enhanced by his choice of shirt,

a bright blue baseball jersey,

worn over mid-thigh shorts,

his sturdy tanned legs

and bare feet dangling,

his Birkenstocks having

slid off to the floor.

He’s leaning forward on

one arm with furrowed brow,

intently concentrating on

his work like a contemporary

Thinker, but it’s not his thinking

that interests me the most.
