I’m the One


The lights of Times Square
flash                             blue
sputter                   red
                                   across our faces

                                                           for an hour
we stand
       in the center
       of a sidewalk.
My body reclines      
             against his                                                                              The advancing crowd
                     his arms around me                                             a constant surge
                                       fingers in my belt loops –       divides
                                                                                                          What a cute couple…
                                                                              around us.

                               What are you thinking?
                                                          he whispers.
                                                               I smile.
