Modern Love

I’ll never forget
your green eyes
your lips
the epitome of red

outside
in a comfortable chilliness
with a backdrop of stone

your cigarette
I asked for a drag
you reluctantly shared

a few smiles
out of place

the awkward hug
you kissed my cheek
at least
I think you did

I’ll never forget
how you told me (via text)
that I never apologized

in the same fashion
that I had apologized (via text)

but back to your eyes

they’re lovely
