attraction (by the bottle)

but that’s the thing about attraction
isn’t it
it’s not like two magnets

one minute you’re chatting away
good friends
no complications
the next
a look in the eyes
a change in the air
something happens

look around you
nothing to see that’s different
look at her
and it’s awkward
try to resist
and it makes no difference
pulled forward
then you’re touching
lips to lips
maybe a hand brushing the face
a leg making contact
and electricity

you might wonder
what was that
what just happened
doesn’t matter
you can’t turn it back
or turn it off
wouldn’t you just love
to bottle it
