This shirt is salmon pink,
a new, tight-fitting shirt for a man.
A man bold enough for pink, for a stiff collar and a tight weave.
Who conceals the limp from his plantar fasciitis on his way across the grocery store parking lot this fine spring day.
This day so supreme it might as well be yucking it up with summer and it is,
they’re cozying up in the corner and everyone’s heads are turned
at this man in a new pink shirt
with his reusable tote and just-washed car showing no signs of wear and tear,
lots of tread still.
