MAKING CONTACT
(8/12/19)


awkward

embarrassing

uncomfortable

for all
involved
in any verbal

any physical
interaction
between
me

them

I was not
meant
to communicate
in proximity
with my
kind

so I smile
in silence
instead

wave
from a distance

my gestures
are then
genuinely
returned

and none
of our days
are ruined
