Star Attraction
by Agata Zema

The room I enter
Is full of people
Flushed from too much
Wine and laughter
Flirting, teasing, hoping
Wishing
For more
Of their fantasies
To become
Reality
Here and now
A new beginning
Adventure
A fling
Or maybe something
More substantial
Raising the stakes
Devotion
Loyalty
Even commitment
Of sorts
Traditional or contemporary
Standards
Anything

A broken heart
Can be mended
An empty one
Yearns
Mourns
Atrophies
Losing
The capability
To feel and be felt
Heal and to soar
Rise above
Unruly encounters
Lack of connection
No chemistry relations

I slowly walk around the room
Circling from left to right
Keeping my head raised
With no eye contact
To start a cat fight
I get into a rhythm of being
Ok about being here
My first time and feel
A little guarded
Four times as many females
Than males
They all watch
