the fedora wouldn't stop talking

You talk too much

spewing smiled sentences
from beneath your broad-brimmed
fedora - shoulder width,
measured by my own,
your neck straining to raise up
without tipping back

I know too much

more about you than my neighbors
more about you than I wish
invitations and compliments
tumbling unorganized from your lips
I won't go out with you
but you won't stop smiling
