straight girl (a teenage triumph)

to you i was maybe a thought here and there
to me you were a preoccupation that rode atop everything
a most exquisite waste of time
when you said lets make out
i said no because you only wanted attention
i didn’t show proper restraint hardly ever back then
but i at least have that to not be embarrassed about

being gay in high school is selling a product
most people don’t understand how to buy
i was not pathetic i was an entrepreneur
who hadn’t identified my customer base yet
i called you into the store but
you were only window shopping
