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
