old man alone



old man alone rests by a pool
young man arrives to clean —
hot college boy away from school
takes off his torn blue jeans

young man takes hold a long stiff pole
its basket stirs the blue
eyes of old man that young man stole
beneath the pool bamboo

old man's fat pecker springs to life
points up towards the sky
young man's own eagerness is rife
he straddles old man's thighs

the pool lounge creaks like grackle birds
young man rides old man 'til
he shoots a steam of milky curd
and grackle birds are still

old man eyes open wide and look
nowhere young man is found
a pool-side dream old man mistook
... as grackles make a sound
