Introvert Poem #2

They say when you

.                                    meet

someone you’re supposed to say

their name three times

.                                           (one, two, three)

like summoning the spirit

of Emily Post

but work it in

.                           naturally

                somehow

But I frankly I have

.       enough

.       to do

with remembering to

speak

introduce myself

not overshare some awful story

set off on a tangent

.                                    and get lost

So maybe we can just

.          remind

each other?
