Roommates

one curling hair
in the bathroom.

one curling hair
on the hall floor.

the phone rings.
yelling and running.

it’s for you!
i wish it was for me!

hurry, hurry!
it’s almost time!

but one sits alone
watching, half-wishing.

her choice was made however,
and self-inflicted too.

one still in the bathroom,
makeup and hair must get done.

one now at the ironing board.
because the exterior must show perfection.

Artist's Description

In college, two of my roommates were asked to a dance. I wasn’t, but that was partially because I chose to be unavailable. Looking back, I really wish I’d made myself available, but hindsight is always 20/20 :)
