street noise

I remember, when I run into you again,
balancing on the edge of the cracked sidewalk,
how much I wanted to like you
even more than I already did

all I hear is nothing you actually said –
everything else is street noise

I don’t often write romance into my poetry these days. But in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ll dust this one off. ❤
