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.
