Vanity

For four weeks I journeyed,
meeting her for research.

Only on my last visit
did she mention she’s
bisexual.

Only on my last visit
did I wish I had put
more effort into my
appearance.

Embarrassing confession, but just the thought that someone might have found me attractive, when it had not previously occurred to me, tapped my vain side. Not something I like to acknowledge, but in the spirit of practicing mindfulness and capturing the movements of my mind in poetry, there it is!
