That moment when you’re walking down the street,
And you’re playing something nice on your iPod.
And it’s a little romantic, maybe.
Anyways, you’re crossing the street
And there’s two people walking your way on the sidewalk.
So you veer left
And then you suddenly notice there’s a person on your right
And they veer right
And after you both pass them
You kind of veer back towards the middle together
And you’re acutely aware that they’re also aware
Of some silly weird connection you’re having
No eye contact, you can barely even tell what he looks like
But when you get to the other side of the street
It takes all your willpower not to hold his hand
And pretend that the romantic song playing
In your head
Is for this silly, probably not-even-that-real
