Sweet Boy

From the African plains

watched me

from across the room all night

tall and handsome

with a natural

gap toothed smile

wearing wrinkled clothing

 more appropriate for church not clubbing

at the

end

of the night

you worked your way

to me

stood silently

beside

for the last song

gap toothed smile shining bright

natural and easy

asking nothing

doing me a kindness

thank you

blessings

Sweet Boy
