Coquetry

By
put away your coquetry, girl.
no delusive excitement and false passion, i say.

there's these butterflies in my stomach,
and security with certainty laced through each word you havn't said yet.
there i am, being all practical, when you sneak up on me.
i blush, but you said im cute when flustered.

our faces blurr together in the photograph.
a mixture solution that will never dissolve.
and ive been forgetting silence.

put away your coquetry, girl, he won’t be here much longer.
