More and more often
he hears himself say
“I’m sorry; have we met?”
to people he’s known for years.
But he knows who she is;
recognizes her instantly
whenever he spots her
at his favorite corner café.
She’s pretty sure she’s still single
but she always springs for his coffee
smiling her way out the door
and he always blows her a kiss.
~ meeting ~
