Headphones

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

Connection.
