  • You weirdo. Because.

    I jumped off the jeepney 500 meters from home. Because you were walking down the street.

    Then I grinned from ear to ear. Because it has been a long long time.

    (where were you???)

    But you dismissed me. I prod on and on.

    And on and on.

    Overly happy, I pushed you off the curb before I turned to my street. Because I just wanted to.

    You fell off the curb. Thanking me for getting off the jeepney. Because, MAYBE, you wanted me to.

    So I walked home alone grinning and grinning.
