I met someone here

i met someone here
some months ago, by the mere
fact we were passing by every morning
he stood on the step looking at the sky,
sometimes in a heavy jacket, a badge 
sewn on his pocket.
we hunched our shoulders and hoped
he wouldn't notice her off leash,
my pajama top hanging out from under
my jacket.
we became friends, this large black man,
me, petite, the dog
i am sad i do not see him here anymore
i have no bounce in my step
my dog still searches for fallen crumbs
she never had the attachment
