she remembers the last five seconds

of what she knows of me

 

forgetting all the high price cheese

that came before

 

it was one glance

at a woman on the sidewalk

 

well okay

maybe it was more than a glance

 

but if it please the court

and for the record

 

I kept strolling with the plaintiff

her hand in mine

 

seems like that might count

for something

 

seems like the good deeds of the past

might carry some weight
