The end of July is near

You're sneaky
again

Another summer

I thought
we
were past this
eyebatting
and
standing too close
in the hallway
and
you call
with frequency
alarming frequency
and I answer
with alarming
perky
shamless
charm

So friendly
And we're not
real
friends

Or
real
anything

First step:
we flirt

Second step:
you leave
by
your
clearly stated
well known
expiration date

I know better

And yet
I will be left with
an embarassing
bar crawl outfit
and
the knowledge of how
embarassingly long
I spent putting
together
that damn
getup

And the embarassment
that
I
did it
again

Let you
sneak
in
between
flirty laughs
and
unsolicited
frequent
compliments

Despite
knowing
way
way
better
