Uncomfortable Theatre Seats

I’m not very good
at peeling away my own skin
pushing hair away from faces
feeling the moment
and grabbing hold
of the hand resting on your lap.

I’m not very good at filling spaces
as I sit next to you
in this theater.

I know,
I know, I’m not very good
at breathing naturally,
seeing situations
unfolding when

–my, it’s dark in here–

you are sitting so far away
in the seat next to me.
