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 street, her upstairs apartment

drapes dark blue, dozens of pillows

puddled candles setting on china plates  


If he closes his eyes,  she is right 


sitting on the hood of her car

eyes closed, listening to her own songs










1-Title- from Margaret vs. Pauline-  Neko Case
