One good Night

What was it that night you came here…all cryin’ and upset…tellin’ me some man had broken your heart…,he motioned to the bartender to serve them some more drinks…placed his long arm around her…brushed blonde hair out of her eyes…

It was right here…you walked through that door…came over and sat right down ‘side me…like some kind of cat that had been left out in the rain…you remember that…, he took a swig of his Modelo…looked at her…took another drink…

I remember…,she said…,that was a long time ago…,lit up a Newport…placed the match in the ashtray…you took me in…made him go away…just by talkin’ you’d made him go away…as if it were a split second…always wanted to thank you for that…tell ya I was real appreciative of what you did that night…

Figured as much…how you been…

Been fine…Katey’s all grown up now…the boy will graduate in May…,she smiled…split between her two front teeth…

You ever think ’bout me…

Yeah…sometimes…think ’bout what we did that night…how you held me…wouldn’t let go of me…damn near broke my spine…

Shots…

I’ll do a shot with you…

Barkeep…two Cuervo’s…limes…salt…the fixins…,she laughed some more…she always laughed around him…

The bartender brought over the drinks and placed them on napkins in front of them…they clanked the shot glasses…smiled…licked their hands and drank ’em down…squeezin’ lime juice into their mouths…

That was to what we never had…

Awe…we had one night together…

Yep…one good night…
