haiku retrospective clxvii

not a haiku...

foggy afternoon
in capitola

i cross the parking lot
with a handful
of candy fruits
for my children

a uc berkeley sweatshirt
walks by
on a forty-something man
with cropped silver head and beard
and a deep scowl on his face

as he walks past
i see the bare back of his neck
tender and vulnerable

i want to jump him
and bite his neck
but why?
