The luxurious black material
shimmered against the sun,
and it hugged his perfect
body like a second skin.
Handsomely debonair
just didn’t do him justice.

  1. elegantly written. reminds me of Banquo’s words about Macbeth: “New honors come upon him, / Like our strange garments, cleave not to their mould / But with the aid of use” (1.3.144-146), nice one, Sarah.
