almost acquaintance [poem]

you are a surprisingly comfortable presence
in my personal bubble
I was bemused when you sat down
started talking about the madness that is work
your order came up and
you slid away to a nearby seat
with plenty of spare room if I should decide to follow
I’m not sure why I didn’t
maybe it was the deep desire to
shrink away from humans for a while on my lunch break
or maybe I’m just too used to
not being part of a one on one conversation
with an almost acquaintance
you’re someone I wouldn’t mind getting to know
and today was a wasted chance
to do just that
