Alphonso

Alphonso was the neighborhood bizzaro
awkward and shy, with head-to-toe
autism
he loped when he walked
(like he suffered a condition
of mismatched leg lengths)
he was artistically-inclined
creating crazy little comics
which he gave away randomly
he came into the bar every day
and stood waiting
avoiding eye contact
for his one lychee on a toothpick.
