I Notice

Your eyes. They shift and fade
in the ups and downs.

The click of a mouse
multiplied a billion times
an hour tonight.

My words. They scrape your chest
like fingernails on a chalkboard.
You know that sound.
You’ve been around.
You know.

Our lines tonight. Awkward and shy,
hesitant to try. I push, you pull.
Confused, the both of us.
What are we trying to say?

My dreams at night
end with me wondering after you.
And you, lost in yourself.
Closed to me.
