The Super Nice Guy

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Just met a super nice guy
with a close-cropped beard
and really chill glasses
and a slightly rumpled shirt.

He was kind of smiling
or at least grinning
knowingly, making
everyone feel at ease

or at least included
in something more chill
than they would be able
to be included in on their own.

And that was enough,
that and his frayed jeans
and suede chukkas,
to make him not the center

of the social scene,
not permanently, but one
gravitational point
in the social scene—for now.
