nice guy

he's like a grown-up kid in a button-down shirt
in an office
at his big desk
covered with lots of papers and gadgets and
he's a nice guy
in his 40s
still thinking of his parents and their friends
as the adults
he's a nice guy
who loves his wife
and feels bad when she gets a migraine
and gets irritated by her stubborn refusal to take medicine
and goes home to take care of her anyway
he's a nice guy
from a good family
who drinks beer
and isn't very tall
and doesn't put on airs
and has dark circles under his eyes
and looks women in the eye when he speaks to them.
