Completely unexpected
I wasn’t even sure I remembered
what you looked like

but there you were
with your eyes that
met mine with slight hesitation.

Your smile, dimpling your cheeks
and summoning an answering curve
of my lips

even though I hadn’t heard from  you
For weeks 

or thought of you

for days
and even though your name
and texts don’t live in my phone

Moments with you–
there really weren’t many–
slipping in and out of my mind
elusive as the cigarette smoke
on the night we met.
