Motorcycle Man

She thought he was
adorable, but not in
the usual sense.
Beer belly beneath
a black cut off T shirt,
muscular arms and shoulders
with extra padding
and a graying little braid
tied back with leather.

But when he walked out
of the men's room in the Quik Stop
and saw her coming towards him,
he got the sweetest widest smile
as he bowed and swept his hand
to let her pass.

He stood next to the Fritos
while she poured her coffee,
she was charmed by how
he kept the smile wide
straining to suck in his gut.

As he climbed up on his bike
he caught her eye, saw
the big guy in the car looking
aside, his eyes were dancing
as he smiled and rode away.
