bellevue

i turn the volume up  
letting patsy cline's silvery voice fill the confines of my truck's cab  
and i know the words  
so i'm singing along  

i'm not supposed to think about you  
that's what the article said  
about managing an infatuation  
that i should stop the thoughts once they occure  
try to distract myself  

so i tell myself that i am not thinking about you  
as i traverse the verdant hues lining the road that is leading me to you  

and i tell myself that i am not thinking about you †
when i arrive at your cafe with the supplies you'll need for the day  

and i tell myself that i am not thinking about you  
when you call to me from the sidewalk  
smiling like a summer holiday  
greeting me by name  


tearing me apart  


how are you so beautiful?
