Day 37
3:10 am – 3:29 am

so close stalker

The lights were about to flash
toward our section
our row
our seats
my eyes
where you
were gazing
right when i raised
my hand
in to the air
when my fists
to peace signs
you like
peace signs

I saw her
there are always
many of her
and at least one
who makes it
to the front row
of the pit
She’s smart.
dressed in
a white
sleeveless top
fabric that lights
her face
and a top
that shows
her skin
They are pros,
these women.
She has worked
her way
to the top
of each list
to ensure those
those damn
front row
But while she
did make sure
to take a sip
of the wine bottle
you passed to
the woman
next to her
in the second half
did you notice
she never mouthed
the words
to your songs
not one?

Who cares.
She had
the right stare
but not
No sir,
you were
just about
to look over
Section 8
when those house lights
flooded my face
threw a t-shirt
right at you
at the
wrong moment
and you
had to
turn away
and finish
the line
the song
the set
the night
and you
were gone

peace signs
damn it
never got to see
peace signs
