An Incorrect Man

By Stuart Dischell From Issue No. 4

He took me to little restaurants
In the neighborhood for lunch
And we drank unfiltered wine and ate
Three courses and talked as men
More interested in novels than sports.

And I would walk him back to his bookshop
And he would take a nap on his office floor
And I would make small talk with the clerk
Who would close the shop and place her
Head beside his on the pillow when I left.
