liking someone & LIKING LIKING someone?
is it broken plans with no phone call?
because that would make a lot of sense.
now i don't want to come off as dense,
but this word right here marks the first --
a twinge of hurt jealous suspicion, which so
often poisons men's minds. i don't know from whence
it came, but rather only that it lives here now,
like the mouse who haunts my kitchen late at night,
& pitters & patters across the floor's reflected moon
the shadows of my thoughts won't retreat in light
until she calls me back or we hit the next high noon.
