Avoid Eye Contact, And They Won’t Come

She smiled as I sat down. It’s nice that people still smile.

She waved at me and I looked around to see who it could be.

She wrote a note and passed it over. It said ‘Hello’. I passed it on.

She asked how I’m doing and I stood up and walked away.

She grabbed me and I apologised for getting in the way of her hands.

She called me a freak as I left the cafe. It’s what I wanted to hear in the first place.

I can’t talk to strangers anymore.
