Quiet Couple Makes Cooking Dinner Awkward
One might’ve thought we had kicked down their dorm’s door during an intense makeout/breakup session and then proceeded to tiptoe all around them, whispering derogatory claims while simultaneously rearranging all of their stuff. Yes, one might have thought such a thing by their snap to silence, their seedy, flickering eyes, their determination to wait us out (though they did, eventually, sulk away).
It’s a public kitchen, people. Go be mopey on the floor of your shower like normal folk.
In matching blue raincoats
Our shoes were our showboats
We kicked around
From stairway to station
We made a sensation
