a boy’s mouth

a boy’s mouth moving
in front of the window
across the room
is he whispering to me
memorizing my face?
or is he singing
a boy singing on
the bus
headphones in his
ears after my
own music stopped
batteries dead
I pretended
to hear music
he beat his hands
against his hips
could not contain
it he sang silent
a tap on my
shoulder as I walked
off
boy tap
his lips smiling I could
have leaned against and
kissed: thank you: he
handed me my hat
