Poetry

I'm keeping my promise to myself to include some of the poems that I'm working on.
Here's the beginning of something:

Untitled

Act like you don’t see me,
know me, want me,
want to be me,
want to be all over me.

Act like you’re too cute to speak.
Act busy.
Act cocky, like you’re the cat’s meow,
or maybe the pajamas I didn’t know cats wore.

Act like you don’t know who I am.
Act like you don’t know my name.
Act like you don’t know your own name.

Turn your head every which way,
except in my direction.
