Like his hand, I try my own at all caps,
Los Lonely Boys singing on repeat.
The letters come out sloppily,
but the tunes have grown on me.
Sugar-cinnamon toast and surface-level chats,
topics about work, my school,
the only small talk my
introverted-self didn't dread.
Music rekindles, it sparks my memory,
those 10 years, seemingly forgotten.
But which one's which?
Which ones am I imagining?
