                                                                      girl sitting next to me

                                in the packed library studying    light
                                holds her breath                          linen
                                halfway down the page              dress
                                places a book out the way          light hairs
                                arm across my notepad              neck
                                shifts holds as she pauses          scalp
                                hair fall as she pencil notes        toe
                                right tail flicks italic lead           points

                is she flirting with me
