The first time that I met her I was throwing up in the ladies room stall. She asked me if I needed anything; I said, â€œI think I spilled my drinkâ€. And thatâ€™s how it started (or so Iâ€™d like to believe)â€¦
She took me to her motherâ€™s house outside of town where the stars hang down. She said sheâ€™d never seen someone so lost, I said Iâ€™d never felt so found â€“ and then I kissed her on the cheekâ€¦ and so she kissed me on the mouth.
Spring was poppinâ€™ daises up â€˜round rusted trucks and busted lawn chairs. We moved into a studio in Council Bluffs to save a couple bucks. Where the mice came out at night, neighbors were screaming all the time. Weâ€™d make love in the afternoons to Chelsea Girls and Bachelor No. 2, Iâ€™d play for her some songs I wrote, sheâ€™d joke and say Iâ€™m shooting through the roof, Iâ€™d say, â€œTheyâ€™re all for you, dear, Iâ€™ll write the album of the year.â€
And I know she loved me then, I swear to God she did. It's way sheâ€™d bite my lower lip and push her hips against my hips and dig her nails so deep into my skin.
The first time that I met her I was convinced I had finally found the one. She was convinced I was under the influence of all those drunken romantics â€“ I was reading Fante at the the time â€“ I had bukowski on the mind. She got a job at Jacobâ€™s serving cocktails to the local drunks. Against her will. I fit the the bill: I perched down at the end of the bar, She Said, â€œSpace is not just a place for stars â€“ I gave you an inch, you want a house with a yard.â€ And I know she loved me once, but those days are gone. She used to call me everyday from a pay phone on her break for lunch â€“ just to say she canâ€™t wait to come home.
The last time that I saw her she was picking through which records were hers. Her clothes were packed in boxes, with some pots and pans and books and a toaster. Just then a mouse scurried across the floorâ€¦.we started laughing â€˜til it didnâ€™t hurt.
