This One Second Glance

This One Second Glance

A Poem by Bryan Wang

By accident I saw you through the window

Drinking your coffee and reading your book

You looked up when I looked up

We’re both searching for the meaning of life


I happened to be strumming my guitar

And wondered what you’d like to hear

Perhaps the silence was enough for you

The void filled with possibility


Have you been lost at sea

Did you lose sight of who you were

Have you been lost at sea


Let’s magnetize this pretend attraction

It may or may not be real

And life may as well be one big lie

That we’re just trying to deny


My favorite first impression

I see you but hear nothing

And can only imagine that these

Lines were parallel from the start


I’ll be going home tomorrow

And we may have to write the last sentence

A sequel is up in the air

We’ll wait for the publication


We found what’s in common

Without saying a single word

By the look in your eyes

Windows could be related


Don’t have an address

But we already have this addressed

Can you feel the centripetal pull

Gravity’s glad to do extra work


Well this one second glance

Sure seemed like an eternity

I’m amazed at what I’ve learned

Impossible is spurned


For now this makes no sense

But it makes too much sense

Turn the page of your book

And let’s connect the story
