pretense

I offer him a seat
against my better judgement
and best intention,
now talking to the elephant
that the others abstained to mention.
Turns out what this night needed
was an awkward social tension –
as they pretend to talk
and I pretend to listen
I await a well needed intervention.
And yet they go on pretending
that we aren’t holding their attention.
Watching them watching
I lose track of an answer
that is too late to question
so instead stare blankly
and smile hardly…
the bunch of cunts
