It opened with the confident hug I’d settled on,
And then she brandished her two tickets.

I couldn’t hear the silly man
In the donkey’s head,
So I chuckled when her box chuckled
And sat politely still.

In the interval she introduced me in passing
As she danced between faces.
I lingered, silent and hungry.

I worried my stomach would disturb her
From her rapture in the second half.
I swallowed two burps and held in a fart
For her sake.

Afterwards I brushed aside her clever questions, smiling,
But the parting hug was shorter
Than I’d hoped.
Her father picked her up to take her home
While I slunk around the corner
To the bus-stop.


Any and all feedback is really useful and will be listened to!
