Unfamiliar Comfort

For someone

Who finds amusement in the little things,

Who has a go-to smile,

Who tilts her head to a certain, specific angle for most photographs,

Who is otherwise eager to hear all about how her closest friends and family are doing,

Who checks notifications on her phone like it’s the buzzer round of the Bournvita Quiz Contest,

Who has dramatic responses,

Who laughs funny and, very often, timed inappropriately

Feeling disconnected feels unfamiliar.

.

.

.

Is it the pandemic?

Is it adulting?

Is it time to talk to someone?

.

.

.

Maybe, it’s unfamiliar comfort.
