Our relationship is awkward.
We try our best
not to get too close,
not to hug that much.
Mostly because . . . it’s awkward.
I’ve known him since sixth grade.

He wrote in my yearbook
“These years have been great
because you were always there
to be second chair,”
then was excited
when he rhymed “there” and “chair”
and didn’t even realize it
’til after he wrote it.
he has been rude and odd,
like he’s PMS-ing or something,

or his ex wants to get back with him
because he grew a couple of inches,
and they have three classes together.
I’m not angry
just filled with amazement
at just how
our relationship has grown over the years.
