She said, "You know,
maybe you shouldn’t pop up
on my block
People might get uncomfortable."
When she said "people,"
she was referring to herself.
I didn’t want to make her uncomfortable.
I just wanted to see her.
I had thought that she might think it was sweet.
I had hoped that she’d think it was sweet.
She did not.
Nor did she not want to see me anymore
This was a fact that
it took me a little time
because I do not always understand
the ways that others behave.
