I Confess To Aloof Ness: A Poem

I once knew a stranger

This girl on my street

I’d walk out of my place

and smile when we’d meet

she talked and her voice

well, it sounded different and sweet

and we’d walk and I’d stare down

wanting to follow our feet

she would tell me things, secret

but just anything new

it seemed exciting and different

because of what, I only knew

another house on the block

where she’d wave and duck in

and I’d go home, and wonder

if the roof should cave in

kind of lonely, and awkward

just a weird stupid kid

and i once knew a stranger

so strange, that maybe, i guess

i never did
