Just Being Nice

In class
Zack met a man,
a man that looked twice his age
and talked with him
like one of the guys.

Some classes later
The man asked Zack
if he could live with him.
Zack said sure, why not,
My room has a spot.

When the man
asked for his phone number
and his home address,
Zack thought,
For sure he’s not serious,
I’m just being nice
By talking with him.
He just wants to hang out
when the semester is over.

On the last day of class
when the man told Zack
he would be coming over
to look at the room,
Zack said,

You’re coming today?

M.R. – 2011
