You put a bow on yourself

and presented yourself to him.

You,

the birthday gift he didn’t have on his list.

The gift that gets returned to the store for a refund-

a voucher-

the gift that one conveniently “loses”.

The thing no one wants.

The one that leaves people with that-

I’m-confused-but-you’re-watching-me-unwrap-      this-so-I’ll-stifle-my-“WTF is this??” face-and-instead-    smile-because-this-is-awkward

-smile which makes them look like they might be relieving themselves.
