Adulterous Aphasia

          appeared in Just a Moment, spring 1995

in a sodden crush of shoppers
I recalled how you smelled,
reveled in remembered warmth,
in April rain and a hundred busy buyers
there was only you,
months later, for the better part of a week
I could not recall
what I bought her one late afternoon,
to mark the birthday.
