I remembered you randomly today,
& thought about that one date.
You took me to a low-lit,
nothing less than $15 place
& talked about mixology
& I didn't care.
I thought it was cool that you had a tattoo
but also thought it was kind of a shitty tattoo.
You smoked 10, 000 cigarettes
& I felt mildly poisoned.
I always thought you were cute in highschool
& told you that years later on facebook.
I was caught in your social web
& decided to add another dimension
& meet in person.
So we did & we went to a few bars.
In the middle of one of them
you said: "Kiss me right now."
So I did
& we were a movie in the middle of mediocrity
for just a memory of a moment.
Even a girl came up & said: "Y'all cant be kissing like that in front of all of us single people!"
But I started laughing and told her it was our first kiss
& she said "Damn! Really?!"
Because I knew,
& I guess everyone else knew, that looked good.
So we give that kiss room to escalate,
We go back to your place.
I know it's fast but there I am,
looking at your tv show collection naked
& judging your choices
Game of Thrones, not bad,
back to pretend sleeping in this new environment.
Then there's some romantic morning boner
& you walk me out
& call me dude
& give me a poor excuse for a hug
while my wincing face is on the other side of your shoulder.
I laugh and shake it off as soon as my car key turns
& only think of you
when you come up as a dumb anecdote.
