Dating

Left,
Right;
Right
Right
Left,
I swipe.

Dude, Lou, you just gotta put yourself out there.

Right,
Right
– Oh, yikes, I think –
And I swipe
Left
Left
Left.

Yeah man, you’ll find a girl if you look for one.

Left,
Left,
Right,
Right…
Back and forth
Across that
Glowing
Glass
Screen.

But you gotta get your ass outta the house to meet someone.

Right,
Right,
Left
Left

Lou Rasmus is an independent author from Chicago, IL. His works are largely focused on exploring the meaning of life – or lack thereof – while the themes of love, relationships, and self-loathing are also central to many of his stories. His upcoming novel, Primrose Isle, will be his third self-published title. Grapefruit Juice, a collection of bitter poems and short stories, and DEAD RED FISH, his semi-autobiographical debut novel about a young man coming to age on a road trip with his childhood friends, are also available on Amazon.
