she blew him a kiss…

I can’t put my finger on it…, she said, you look different….maybe it’s the hair…have you lost weight…,her emerald eyes gave him a good going-over…

do you remember when we used to stay up all night talkin’…like it was nothin’…as if we didn’t have jobs or responsibilities in our lives…,the blonde’s feet shifted back and forth in the gravel…

no…we’d just talk…talk and talk and talk as hours of darkness became light…,she pulled out a cigarette and offered him one…he shook his head…she shrugged her shoulders…,’member those times…not too long ago…not like we were kids or somethin’…just man and woman talkin’…

why don’t we do that anymore…,a flask was pulled from her purse…she took a swig…,we don’t talk anymore…I never know what to say…cat’s always got my tongue…and you…you’ve become this silent type…like some western cowboy…,he smiled…

what do you make of us…,she placed her hands on his shoulders…,what’s gonna become of us…think we’ll just vanish like ghosts…you’ll go your way and I’ll go mine…,their eyes locked…

bye bye Eddie…I’ll talk to you later…,crushed her smoke with her boot…,give me a call sometime…sometime…,he just looked at her as she walked backwards waving at him…she blew him a kiss…
