there’s that little look
they give you
when they recognize you
as interesting
as unique
something to behold
the eye contact that lasts
a little too long
but not seeing you
longing after
who you could be
to them
but not wanting you
not really
wanting you to be
the jester at their party
the novelty they can try on
parade around
to be a tourist
in your life
they want to experience you
but just for a moment
just so they can tell their friends
so they can say
“they were mine”
