i started 15 word doodles today and i think this is the one that displeases me the least

i kind of forget my swagger
when i am around you
and i’m not sure
if that’s good
post-game recap
features flubbed plays
dropped balls
big Xs on the telestrator
and yet…
it seems ok
to me
i suppose
and
i am still me
of course
practicing my
“irritation is
the sincerest
form of flattery”
routine
i’ve got it down
believe
but
i still wonder
as one would
well
as i would
how many of your blanks
i am filling in
i do that
i know
but
i look at you
and
i know
i’m not that creative
you ask
what i’m thinking
i answer something
anything
but
what i’m thinking is
that it works
your big dangly earrings
on my bedside table
is what ties the room together
i noticed
i kind of lose my smirk
when i am around you
and
i hope
you don’t find it

    I hate the question and never tell anyone what I’m actually thinking that moment. Couldn’t tell you why.
