I’ve never been comfortable
with hopscotch and tag.
They made my shorts dirty.
And screaming sounds silly
from the playground stairs.
I have to do the laundry tonight.
My parents need me.

So I understand
more than you think,
you can’t speak with me,
like you do the stars.
I’m much too old.

And no,
I haven’t felt the tracings of your heart
when cologne and summer nights
kiss under the street lights
in cargo shorts.
“I hope he thinks I’m beautiful”
But that doesn’t mean I can’t.

So come to me
next time you feel
raindrops fall.
And sit with me.
Drink tea.
I won’t burn my tongue.
I’m patient like that.
