at our outset
a simple case
of product placement

often not nearly
as cunning as intended

because fascinated eyes
have been known to shine

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

when catching oneself
before over-committing

along with a week's worth of
all black attire

practiced eyes
know the symbolism well

and its intent

and yet first valiant effort
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
