Coke-commercial man

He had
The elegance
Of self-rolled cigarettes
The skin-thin paper
Twisted at the end
Played the guitar—
Of course
Played in a sort of off-hand way
So casual
Ah, he was my Coke-commercial man
Selling music on the road
Road tripping America
On weed and wheels
Windows open
Sweating in the dusty wind
Blue cotton collared shirt
White clouds
Blue sun
