i saw you today,
paying for your bottle of cheap wine
in the overcrowded express aisle;

you acted like you didn’t notice 
me watching,
but your trembling hands
gave your secret away.

it’s why i always kept mine
folded in my lap 
when i was around you;
something about your gaze
had a way of setting my nerves
on fire.
