    3rd Seat; 1st Row

    by James Landrith

    Published 2003 in Eternal Portraits (poetry.com)

    Looking at her from across the room,
    does she know what I’m thinking?
    While I detach myself from the occupants of the room,
    does she know what I’m thinking?
    Does she care?
    Sitting here in the safety of my chair,
    I don’t have to commit my thoughts to action.
    Embarrassment or immaturity is my fear.
    Only here, in the safety of my chair,
    can I realize that fear.
