Oh dear where do I begin. Okay so…
1) I’m not sure if I like him like that yet. I think I might.
2) Lets go back to October, shall we?
Oh. Yeah. His name is Josh. We work together. We banter a lot. He picks on me, and I just sit there and try to dish it back. I’m really bad at it. He gives really good hugs. And gives them a lot. He’s six years older than I am, and has the Chris Evans Dorito Factor™ going on
October- I made an eclair, which he fell in love with. He keeps mentioning the eclair and wants me to make him one. He also told me one day I was going to make someone very happy (when I marry my partner)
November- We both LOVE reggae. I had two tickets to a reggae concert and my friend flaked on me. I asked him, he said he wish he could go, but had to study (it was exam week)
January- Josh (out of no where) told me that he wished he went with me to the concert.
February- I found out he broke up with his girlfriend.
March- Soon after that, he asked me if I would help him search for apartments. I sat with him, and we were arguing back and forth which is the better one. Another coworker came in, and then took a Snapchat of us side by side and said “can you feel the love tonight?” She proceeded to send it to the work Snapchat group.
Monday, I came in and we were really busy so I went to the computer and started typing. The computer was a tall iMac 🖥 (
Sheets pulled aside
like a sleeping tide,
and the yellow sun winks at us
through the blinds.
Backyard citrus trees,
the smell of fresh lemon balm
on a white kitchen counter;
the coffee mug my mouth
comes home to
and the stale molasses cookies
in the cupboard.
We go to work.
We come back home.
This is our October comfort.
Cross-stitched cotton sweaters,
tangerine peels in the trash.
Witches at the front door with freckles
and mummies with a sweet tooth.
Your laundry mixing with mine.
Caterpillars hanging on low branches,
lizards in the cool shade.
I wish there was a way to remember this;
to softly tell myself in my sleep,
‘This is important,
this is so important,
I hope you’re paying attention.’
