you just gave me another
person to avoid, another face
to have to look away from,
another set of feelings
to bottle up inside
letting them escape only
in eye rolls, sneers and withering remarks
uttered in attempted
sotto voce.

gee, thanks.
like I don’t have enough
of those already.
I could really use
a few more.
