The Gallery

he spoke of love and valentines for the people
an online dating video that left me feeling

she talked of spells.  she talked of a lot of things
all I saw was a beautiful book
perfect, in fact

the guy next to me sighed so we knew he was bored
or stupid
I am not really sure which

the guy next to me was stupid

two girls sat in front of me
they never sighed
or looked at my work

the guy behind them felt stupid

he spoke of
he spoke of
he spoke very softly

he knew how to fly, how to get somewhere
he knew the crowd
he encouraged us to drink

we already had
but he was right to ask

I told myself I could write
but when I did
I sounded like someone else
