gamer romance [poem]

teach me your quirks
make your interests my own
if you love that game I’ve never heard of
have me over to play it while we eat pizza
hand me the controller with minimal instruction
and laugh as I crash and burn
I’ll shove you off the couch while I try to work out
the right keys to jump and shoot
I may not fall in love with the game
maybe I’ll hand over the gameplay
halfway through the first round
but I’ll appreciate the gesture
