I flip through a few pages
think about getting a drink
unsettled. I start to clean
distracted. I scroll through my timeline
laugh at a few memes
glance at my phone for the 100th time
still…
nothing

a few days pass
before I grasp
your silence
your distance
your unavailability
both attracted
and triggered
the broken parts of me
