You were doing lunges like tomorrow wouldn’t come
If you didn’t get them done.

You also saw me.

You used your side-eye, but I’m Midwestern too, honey —
I knew what you meant.

I tried to say Hi.

You ignored me.

I’d have thought it was headphones,
But you were looking at me

Vigorously,
Pointedly,
And again from the side.

You think you’re hiding it, but I can tell.

I know that looking like my body is your greatest fear.

I still write sometimes, and I have a buttload of already-written stuff. So there you go.
