Sitting outside a classic new-age granola store,
a young man
perplexing hair and too much/not enough clothing,
Said hi brother.
But I think maybe he only wanted brotherhood
to secure a few bucks from me.
I said no.
He told me he was a traveler.
25 states this summer.
Might stay in town,
find some work,
or get a girlfriend.
Who is this girl? That’s mostly what I wanted to know.
Would she have a few bucks he could borrow?
