Nice Ass! by Ryan Quinn Flanagan

Two kids
three months past puberty
out in their parent’s truck
pull up beside the curb.
The one in the passenger seat
leans out the window
and yells: NICE ASS!
The long hair turns around
and it is a man with a
full beard.
One of those dainty hippie types the sixties
forgot about.
OH MY GOD!, I hear the driver shriek
in a squeaky voice.
Sorry sir, sorry, I thought you were
the passenger throws up
his hands in apologetic surrender.
The truck roars off from the curb
and the longhair
looks around embarrassed.
I stop and pretend to be
window shopping
because that seems best
for everyone.
