he had on working man's clothes faded jeans plaid shirt boots mid-50s he's half a block away but walking toward me when a young man turns a corner and passes him when the working man spins around and says something making the young guy turn shrug and smile

the working man catches up to me and keeps my stride i caught that kid turn around twice to look at that pretty girl across the street me i'm too old too grey now i don't even look hey man you've been hit hard by the grey too how old are you you are 48 49 

close enough i've been going grey since i was six

the working man turns the corner and is gone
