human hides

This man lives in the building next door. He gyms everyday. So tonight, it’s a hot one. Like thirty some degrees outside. I’m standing on the balcony watching the half moon and this man gets out of his car in the dark. He must have been sitting there for a while listening to radio or something. And I look down and I catch a glimpse of his immaculate topless body glistening in the moonlight. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week. How flesh moves when it’s proud and warm. Objects, walking to heartbeats, treading on lust: human hides floating above the heat.
