Brief Encounter, 1986 (Day 86)

The beginning
was a seed
of attraction
planted in possibility
watered, soon sprouted

we kissed, changed,
and washed
some serious deep feelings

his face surprised me—
that even, light
displeasure,
brutally honest

instinctively,
I disguised
hope with a mask
of bored disregard
and looked
toward
the television's electric
blue radiance
