At the Foals Concert

1

Tall, slender, in skinny jeans,

skimpy grey tank, Converse low-tops,

black knit cap worn way back

over backward-combed blond hair,

eyes grey-blue, skin smooth and tan.

 

2

Tee striped the color of lemon meringue,

bright blue rolled-leg chinos, loafers

in pale green with rubber soles.

Hair cut 60s mod, with beard,

walks with hands in his pockets.

 

3

Tee shirt snug, faded orange,

dark skinny jeans, with big cuffs

rolled up to middle calf,

leather slides on his feet,

hairy legs and he stands

with them close together, not

the typical stance for a guy.

He stands that way for a while,

then crosses left in front of right,

toe down, heal up, the silhouette

of a statue, classic Greek.

 

4

Short shorts in a chalky blue,

navy tee with deep V-neck,

black glasses, red narrow shoes,

dark hair cut expensively,

slender legs, delicate build.

 

5

Strawberry blond, classic cut,

parted left; black V-neck tee

reveals more chest hair than expected,

given that he’s under-aged.

Wearing dark jeans, super-skinny,

cool black lace-ups trimmed in yellow.

Classic nose, good teeth, stylish glasses.
