he was like Japanese anime from the 90’s

he was like Japanese anime

from the 90’s: he made her

melancholy in 2019,

her knees pressed up against the computer screen,

the little people smiling blandly

into their porclein coffee-mugs.

she was wearing white-blue jeans, her

eyelashes were bleached,

and the traffic went by slowly and silently:

there is a parade of cars and the only sound is the boy putting

down his coffee-mug and wiping his

hands against his hand-drawn forehead.

the girl

sighed.

‘you are like something like this.’ she said.

‘you are making me

miss what i never had.’

(the curtain lines of the sky crowd carefully into the sun;

the people are happy).
