“This message is no longer available
because it was unsent by the sender.”
Forgivness Suppressed.
The desire for a kiss withdrawn
Gagged by doubt
Or perhaps gender politics.
The door closed.
Curious as a kitten
I want to know
what hides behind.

An instagram notification popped momentarily across the top of my mobile screen.  Someone had sent a DM.   I caught only the word “kiss” before the notification vanished.  By the time I had opened my instagram messages, the sender had withdrawn their note. I took a moment to tap this out on my phone.

There may be a day when I don't
have to beg for money.

Today is not that day.
