New Kid in Town

His big boy haircut and tailored slacks
set well  atop the casually understated
Buster Brown lace ups,

His velocipede was sleek,
the first one on the block in metalflake
and the fastest too.

It was not the shoes
and the shiny cycle with tassels
that dazzled and impressed,

it was how he hid his tears
when he crashed.
