Auto-man in Ray-Bans

                   for Patrick Rafter

He has a ponytail pulled back
strands hanging at the nape
earlobes exposed
hot-blade mouth
a sweating aura of half nudity
black tank-top
follicles of almond oil
sultry at the neck.
His embattled belly button
deep within
a torso to be auctioned off
to airlines and motor firms.

The sex appeal arena dims.
When it comes
it’s cerebral
boyish Miami skin in Bermuda wood −
explicit look for film.
A baseline chin
brings an electric sense of self.

A sculptured Samsonite leans
in Ray-Ban’s for the shoot
peeling tennis socks −
hot property athlete
adept in games
of getting off his kit.

His belly button sneaks a look
in dark places of recovery;
a body-hair of wunderkind
wall dangerous, sultry pout −
a grad slam for the ladies
with advertising men
in the company of Foxtel
Prince or Reebok.
