we’re uncomfortable at first
fidgeting, looking away
my fingers keep twirling the ring around my index finger
around and around
hesitantly, I ask how you’ve been
isn’t that why we’re here?
to probe and see if the other is doing just as fine
as we pretend to be.
I hope your Instagram and Facebook posts are a façade
I want you to be just as devastated about us being over
as I still am.
so when I ask how you’re doing
please don’t say you’re fine.
