“work flirting”

although she is married
with kids
and I’m her subordinate
(and often acting insubordinate);
there is something there.

we both know it.
we will never admit to it,
and can never acknowledge it,
but
these momentary encounters
brightens
both
our
days.

the eyes go from tired and bored and upset and frustrated
to
refreshed;
stimulated;
reinvigorated;
revitalized.
No makeup necessary; connections seem to do the trick.

a hallway can go from boring
and empty
to
sensational
and
euphoric.

I look forward to these random run-ins.

I can’t wait for the next.
