A gentleman

Posted in Uncategorized by erdaron on June 14, 2010

The gentleman stood relaxed, hands in the pockets of his dress pants. The expensive jacket – ruffled over the hands – bore signs of extensive recent wear. It more crumpled than one would expect, with gray scuff marks on the left arm. The tie has been long unraveled, and hung on by a miracle. The starched shirt’s top buttons have been undone, and the collar has obtained a certain off-white quality suggesting that something – perhaps makeup – rubbed off on it. The entire ensemble represented the finest things tossed around with only the slightest of care.

A burning cigarette hung loosely from the man’s grin, adding the final devilish, debonair element.
