the girl in accounts

little brunette

with the great green eyes

I looked at her

as I pushed the post trolley

felt tingles in my body

was it want or need?

these things are hard to know

& only years later

when we met again

did she tell

she had felt the same

not daring to look at me

rubbing along at work

neither of us

saying a word

she had married divorced

& now was jaded

from all of that

& me

well you know

never let anybody tell you

life is not hard
