of product placement

often not nearly

because fascinated eyes
have been known to shine

as personal space
defines a relationship between
self-reflection and base desire

portends nothing

the second act is self-doubt
and insecurity unexpressed

feelings channeled elsewhere
the genius of compartmentalized
denial

risk-averse romance
comes without a partner
