A Man in a Suit

"New clothes are pleasing to my people.
A gracious appearance is all they love."
~Hafiz Ibrahim

An old man
Sips black cappuccino
He sports a brown business suit
Gold watch glistens
His grey tie sprouts red & blue flowers
From thin
White tendrils
He thumbs burnt orange "worry beads"
In his right hand

His right hand trembles

Behind him a lightpole leans
riddled with bullets.
