The Lady From Milan

________________________________________________________________________________________________

In December of 2008,
we met in an Italian hotel lobby.


She was sitting next to
a bowl of chocolate mints.

I lit my cigaret
and walked out the door.

Two weeks later,
I unpacked my suitcase
in Long Beach,
and there she was.

Her name is
Scatola di Fiammiferi.

She is still with me.
