Today
For a mere quarter hour
I fell deeply in love with a French girl
Black hair, pale skin, seat one, Table 207

Beet salad and an order of calamari
She ordered a Cherry Coke
I whispered “I’m sorry
We don’t have that”

That’s a lie.
Added it for the drama
She had a pint glass of water
No ice

Then she paid in cash and left
