What’s yours?

by Beautiful Tragedy   Jan 29, 2018


It’s still my first week-ish at my brand new job and;
I’m sitting in the booth on my phone because we aren’t very busy.
The song changes and with an inaudible sigh I finally decide to
go out and see if there’s anyone to talk to so-
Grabbing my water and heading towards the back of the club I walk slow while taking in my surroundings.
Looking to the left-
Nobody.
I play with the straw in my water and keep walking only to stop when I see a couple of guys standing a few feet away.
They’re both tall with dark hair;
Both in jerseys and wearing a hat.
One of them smiles at me;
And after contemplating for a little longer than necessary I decide
to talk to them.
I start with the one on the left and grab his hat;
Putting it on my head and giggling until he finally takes it back.
I try to do the same with his friend but he catches me and laughing he says:
“No no no. I don’t let other people wear my hat.”
And that’s the story of how I met the man who touched me without even using his hands.
What’s yours?

    Judging comment:

    Sometimes we learn to understand that poetry is not always pretty words, beautiful metaphors and lovely descriptions like Shakespeare or Robert Frost; it is more about the feeling that a poem generates and how it connects with the reader to make them feel something (anything) beautiful, and with me, you have achieved this. I loved reading your poem and the story you've shared with us in it.
