don’t sit with your mouth agape and stare.
let him look down your top
passing by – by accident
(oh my god, what rubbish, how humiliating)
look him right in the eye. smile.
don’t beam like a fool. put your feet together
nicely, like so. don’t hold your knees
apart. only when he’s looking.
(oh my god, what rubbish, how tempting)
know, when his gaze is tied to your body,
don’t act like a fool.
be a real woman, wait, until he takes
the first step.
talk to him, if you really want to, if he’s mum.
only for god’s sake – don’t act like a fool.
