unspoken honesty

By Bast


maybe
i'll see you at that party
saturday night
with all
the cool
kids


maybe
we could sit on the couch
stained
with last year's romance



we could make out
and pretend
we're having a good time





we could
go home together

wake up
and tell the usual
white lies
of "i'll call you"
and "we should hook up again"



we can
act
like it meant something



kiss

like we know
each other's
names
