Day 85
2:35 pm – 2:55 pm

when we met

He’s going to totally brain-fuck me
completely lull me in to a cranial trance
and even though I’m with someone else
it doesn’t matter since he loves playing
chess and all is fair all is fair

I know he feels this way
you can tell in the way
he brushes my fist
with his finger and asks me
what I’m doing tomorrow

Then he times the question
perfectly with some new word
I’ve never heard just so I will have to think
about him again later when I reach
for my smooth hard dictionary
