represent

the temp is somewhere

in the hot high 90’s

& I’m dressed for comfort

soft shoes, shorts

some T with a slogan

& the strange straw cowboy hat

off to score motorcycle parts

in the high desert swap meet

all around me bikers in black

representing

boots, jeans, flannel shirts

black leather vests sweat

& a quiet voice says

who let the Indian in?

& it takes a second

for this to click

oh, they mean me

taking in my easy attire

dressed for the heat

with the long hair plait

dropping down my back

& why the hell not?

if I chose to dress today

out of their tribe

I’ll take that with a smile

a man has to represent

something

in this world
