When you meet me

17 Jul

If you are ever around
an off-beat shop
or a cigar bar
or record shop
or used book store

you will probably find
me there
smoking a cigar,
searching for
old jazz records
or looking for
poetry books
by unknown poets
(like myself)

I’m that kind
of person

And if you see me
wink
and say “hi”

I’ll smile back
and buy you a
strawberry
ice cream cone
