Hesky Kluk? Check!

He wasn’t actually Czech, of course,

though he checked all of my boxes,

European possibly, or Latin American,

speaking a Romance language to his friend,

in line behind me at the grocery checkout,

buying flowers, lilies, I think, for someone

else, probably one of his lovers,

but I had already checked him out

from produce, over by the mangos,

his hair tied up, muscular T-shirted torso,

lightly-haired legs between shorts and sneakers,

probably an international student at the uni,

not Czech at all, but still a pretty boy.
