On the Run

Pack of young runners,

twenties, no shirts, skimpy shorts

flapping in light wind.

Trade

Shirtless runners, two of them,

both do-able, but one’s hotter, hands down:

platinum blond, I’d choose him.

Broad chest with just the right amount

 

of hair, tanned but not too dark,

well-done tattoo between shoulder blades.

He makes me glad I came to the park;

I know what to ask for if he wants to trade.
