weird places to make new friends?
how do i—?say something to that boy over there
who i know will get along with me so well
because he’s got patches on his jacket
of all the things i think i might like too.
how to impress strangers?
or maybe just be made fun of
for writing poetry
(kind of dorky, you see) yet
a lot of people actually dig it
something showing vulnerability
hides other people’s frailties.
how to like yourself?
yeah i know it doesn’t help
you can search all you like, up high, online
but the answer’s gonna find you
when you least expect it – at night, or
in the morning/ right
in the middle of an exam
a meeting, a dead-end relationship
in the instant you stop looking.
