Barely Dressed At my Desk

Sitting typing at my desk
in a state of near-undress,
Towels wrapped round my head and torso
face is bare (and shoulders more so),
Out the window I do stare
seeking inspiration there,
Watching people passing by
wondering to whence they fly,
Sometimes as they cross the street,
For a moment our eyes meet –
But then they blush and look away,
stride even quicker on their way
I pause, and wonder why they frown –
Then realize my towel’s slipped down…
