How?

“I love you,” he said.

Just like that.

I said nothing.

“I said, I love you.”

I said nothing.

“You’re supposed to say it back.

You’re supposed to say something.

Tell me how you feel.”

His eyes implored an answer.

“How do I feel?” I said.

“How do I feel?

I feel like a kid

Let loose in a sweet shop,

And I haven’t eaten for a month.”
