baby steps

the good news is
that your presence at the show
didn’t ruin my good time.
I still rolled my eyes
a minimum of three times
during the night and you did
try to interact with me
via charades but I let my gaze
slip over you like you
were Teflon. maybe next time
I can talk to you
without wanting
to shoot myself right
in the head.
