He is stuck there, the song in his head

a cover of an old song,

wrapping around the memory of her intoxication 

 

He can picture her so clearly: her street, her upstairs apartment

drapes dark blue, dozens of pillows

puddled red candles on china plates  

 

If he closes his eyes,  she is right 

there                         sitting on the hood of her car

eyes closed, head titled back, listening to her own songs
