confession III

I remember telling my friends about you.
They said: ‘Why does he make those faces?’
I was taken aback. ‘What faces…?’

‘those weird expressions, every time he talks.’
‘ah,’ I said, ‘those!’ ‘that’s just how he is.’

truth be told, at that time I was clueless
although it was so obvious about you:
how your face would tell half the story

me? I didn’t notice until later –
I was blown away by those eyes,
that way you had of looking at me

(sideways, from under those
long lashes I was later certain
you were curling at home)
