the door was closed

i am shy, risk averse & hardly fond of new, unpredictable interactions

I sat down to eat

time for business

music in

you can come in, he said

im good, already settled

i was

food was all spread; work was out

we’re just studying, he said

shes kinda mad at me tho.

not sure if i asked why

damn snapchat

i return to pressing matters

the door opens

she hurries out with her head down

i will never know if I knew

with these memories i associate confusion, cowardice, certainty, indifference, and innocence

i will never understand

but now

I am not someone who wishes to shy from closed doors.

I will not wash my hands.
