evening stroll

sitting on this side of
wide-open coffee shop windows
watching couples walk past
i can’t help wondering
if decades from now
you and i could be
those little old asian ladies
strolling that stretch of sidewalk
side by side and hand in hand
oblivious to the young queers
rushing around them in search of
hillcrest’s most popular pride parties
