He walked around, ego protected by a false
air of confidence
surrounding his step and the bulk of his stomach

“I’d fuck the one on the left”

Laughing, from the window, at the exchange kids
standing at the counter

Wasn’t often out with us
said it didn’t matter

even so

aleways had to be
of everyone’s attention
the confident air a cloud, to
those around
