at the theater
i dropped her at
the curb
and then i
drove to
find
a parking
spot.
it was getting
cold.
there was one
just inside
the first lot, so
that’s where i
went.
it seemed like
a break.
maybe small,
but nice.

i locked the car up
and made it
inside rather
fast.
she was
in line for
tickets already
ahead of
a dozen
or so
other folks.
i squeezed past
them and
up to
her.

a bearded man
behind her looked
at me, so
i pointed at her and
said,
‘i’m
with her.’
he looked at
her and
he said,
‘well
you must be
some kind
of lucky.’

‘you’re damn
right,’
i said.
then
i saw her
smile
and felt her
grab
my hand.
