Art or Science?


When he looks at me
should I hold his gaze or look away?
When he smiles
should I pretend I didn’t notice?
When he offers to buy me a drink
should I accept?

Cross my legs or uncross them?
Let my hair cover my face or keep it off?
Lean back or bend forward?
Laugh heartily or smile enigmatically?

I’m way out of my depth
never having mastered
the science of flirting

Or is that an art?
