notification [poem]

if I close my eyes
I can pretend away your message
that little icon tucked into my notifications
like a flash grenade
if I don’t unlock my phone
I can pretend I’ve moved on
and forgotten you
in all your painful magnetism
if I grab a paperback book
instead of scrolling through fanfiction just this once
the only person who will know my weakness
is you
