sitting at the cafe like we always used to

the black and white decor
– posters of Audrey Hepburn, cigarette holder in
gloved hand; James Dean, leaning against
a car; icons long dead –
mis-matched chairs.
chalked up menus, smudged by a
long day’s wear,
the red ceramic vases holding
yesterday’s dark green foilage:

everything, just as always

you (dark hair, dark eyes)
sitting across
me (darker hair, darker eyes)

: everything, just as always

the only thing that’s missing
is that song that used to play
– last year’s hit

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you
