waiting w/ a book and a pulse.
w/ the pack of gum slipping from my pocket.
w/ you and your soft swallow.
and w/ you and your peach yogurt, spoon scraping the bottom.
w/ eye contact w/ you.
w/ your dropped quarters at the vending machine. w/ me craning to see your decision.
w/ my neckline too low.
w/ the whiff of vanilla.
w/ your jawline, your moving temples your cheekbones.
w/ the pink bug bite on your neck.
w/ scuff marks w/ hot July skin w/ sips of water.
w/ your sleep right at my shoulder.
w/ me not saving your seat.
