Nothing at all

This boy
This boy
This boy
This boy
This man who pauses
And says “No one can pull off blue like you do,”
when he sees my hair.

This boy
This boy
This boy
This boy
This man who pauses 
And says, “I’ve never had a conversation fly so fast”
when we’re on the phone.

This boy 
This boy 
This boy
This boy
This man who pauses
And says, “Maybe I should learn Spanish” when he hears me speak it.

This boy
This boy
This boy
This boy
This man who pauses
And says, “You have such great taste in music and you have such a sense of rhythm” when I clap triplets on my thighs to Mozart to show him how to swing it. 

This man
This man
This man 
This man
This boy who pauses
And says nothing.
Nothing at all.
