Cashier Samir

He’s out of my reach, he’s out of my
But he’s the reason why I
Head to Publix every
I’ve barely said a word to him, and yet 
I make my way through every
Just to catch a glimpse of him
Then maybe catch his eye
And smile

He rarely ever sees me as he puts some
Into bags, but some days I get
And he’ll look up and smile back
He’ll never know that I’m just standing there
Waiting for the day he speaks to
He always ends up busy, and so
Remains a mystery

In result, I always leave the scene with
Head spinning round and my
In my cheek. Because while no one can
Decipher the look I wear on my
He’ll always be so close to me, one 
Week and one aisle

I hope one day his voice will find me,
Just to say hello, even if it’s just
In passing
As I walk by and turn to go
I hope one day he’ll read this poem and hear
I have to say
But for now I’ll keep my hopes up
For one week and one aisle
