Are you even listening? She barked at me

I smiled and watched her continue to talk

at me

No, I wasn’t paying attention

I was too busy memorizing the lines on your face

the color of your lips at 12:07pm

the way your hair curls

the way your laugh sounds as the sun fades over the horizon

“You never listen, I swear!”

She threw her hands in the air and stomped off
