Napkin Number

a customer leaves me his number
and my coworker,
who i also dated
for a minute
throws it in the garbage
“Remember, you said
no dating.”
“yeah, you have a point”
I answer,
surprised but not caring
i wasnt going to call
a napkin number anyways

“When will you go back
to your old name?”
he asks,
“I liked it.”
“Really,
you liked it better?
Huh. I’ll consider it.”

and i do.
I think hard about
the timing

going back
to the person
i was meant to be.

i’ll see if i can
pencil it in
somewhere between
Venice and Venezuela
ill work on it.
