AND I LOOK AT HER

And I look at her

and we talk about pot

and her boyfriend

and I like

to bring up

the Grateful Dead

which she feels

is quite silly

\

But I do detect

a trace

of intrigue

that says, maybe,

just maybe,

under different circumstances

that we could be

and though we dart eyes

to  avoid contact

and feign indifference

under the God Almighty

name of friendship

I think that it might

be a good idea

to re-examine

the situation

because it would be

a crying shame

if we never knew

and just went by

with a few jokes

and a handful

of scattered smiles

but we may never know

because fate arranged things

with such timing

as to see that

you & I

would misconnect
