He Is

+ enlarge

He is
A gentleman
A First Sergeant
The do-right guy
He has taken me
To dinner, to lunch, to coffee
To see the People’s Punk Band
And he has kissed me
Exactly twice
In as many years
His blond moustache
Scratchy against my face
He is
Cynically sweet
Honest in what he says
But holding back
What he feels
He says
I give mixed messages
And he can’t
Understand me
Yet he accepts
Me as I am
He is
My friend, my supporter
One for whom I
Will clear my calendar
For he will never
Take advantage
And he is proof
That good men exist.
