Together We Go

Together We Go

A friend stuck his tongue in my mouth after I accidentally fell asleep on the train ride home.

We laugh.

A customer made a comment about my legs to my male supervisor.

We laugh.

A lover recounted the things I had said and done the night before- a night in which I blacked out comically early. Early enough to remember none of it.

We laugh.

A colleague sighs and says to me, “You get all these men all the time! You must be great in bed!”

We laugh.

A new guy tells me I’m unreadable and cold, that I act too much like a guy. That’s his role.

We laugh.

A buddy makes endless jokes about the familiarity I must have with the bar we’re sitting in because I mistakenly told him I had met a guy there before.

We laugh.

A nurse tells me an ambulance brought me in alone as I awake, pleading for answers with bewildered eyes, no friends, no coat, no wallet, and no recollection of the previous five hours. “Hey, it’s New Year’s, our busiest night!”

We laugh.

A comedian, who’d referred to me as “Nose Ring” to his friends, grabbed my face and said “Hey, you don’t have to.”

We laugh.

A boy I’d liked and got school-girl-giddy about for the first time in a long time- the one who took me out and stayed up late to recant the mediocre inside jokes we had shared- disappeared the day after we finally did the deed. The last message being “Last night was fun haha”

We laugh.

A bartender and barback hug me goodnight after closing and tell me to get home safe, my face and order etched in their minds because I’m the one that needs to forget, and that they’ll see me tomorrow.

We laugh.

There’s no I in team, right?
