Tokyo city at night
we told the taxi cab to ‘just drive’
I fell asleep against the window
and woke up on your shoulder.

You were holding my hand.
Not just in a casual sort of way
but actually holding it out
admiring the contours of my hand,
it seemed,
the pink of each nail.

And for a little while
I pretended to be asleep
because I almost
didn’t want to know why.

  1. This makes me think of those moments when a relationship is new, and you can’t get enough of one another-yet you don’t want the other person to know that you are starting to feel that way. I like that he didn’t wake up all the way. Great job. kim
