NW 23rd

I’m just looking for a
square jaw,
broad shoulders
and maybe a thick
chin strap,
at least tall enough,
old enough, 40’s,
with a little bit of
salt and pepper,
who looks as good
as you did
in that blue suit
and tailored
as we passed
one another
on the sidewalk,
and how I couldn’t
hold that gaze
that sought to hold mine
long enough,
had to force myself
to look away because
I’m not so sure
if I’ve ever seen anyone
quite so damn
good looking,
that I still haven’t forgot,
and actually hope
it’s a route you walk often,
on NW 23rd.
