Friendly Strangers

I delete half the words I tell you
before you ever see them
funny comments or simply hello
most erased after a second thought

we’re the best at not speaking
if there are secrets that we share
we make sure to keep them far enough
away from the heart of the matter

we acknowledge in glances unseen
and you speak in thinly veiled metaphors
I pretend not to notice and
you seem to like it better that way
