enjoying the weather, same as everybody else

I parked my bike and lay in the grass on an unseasonably warm day in February

I watched cirrus brushstrokes floating overhead and pretended to pretend I saw images

The people next to me took posed pictures by the scenic lakescape

How insignificant! I thought, acting like I didn’t notice them

How they’re missing the point! I judged, while quietly keeping focus

A slight breeze blew, and my bike fell on top of me

So much for appearing relaxed and carefree
