nude reclining on sofa

"I found a picture in my neighborhood; it had fallen out of the trash. It's a black and white staged shot of a man, naked, reclining...the print isn't perfect so it looks grainy and old and melancholy. My 'hood' is populated by a lot of older, well to do gay men so I have to wonder if it's symbolic of getting rid of a lover, or am I being too melodramatic?"
