mirar fijamente/espejo #30days #30days2018 by Cherie Ann Turpin


you asked me if I was okay
i didn’t say what was really on my mind
i didn’t ask why do you stare so much at me
your eyes like your voice tipsy
that moment felt like a cotillion
waltzing and rocking back and forth
never touching
never kissing
court manners
social expectations
respectability of distant admiration
without acknowledging
phallic intent behind the gaze
not complicated to understand
