Ex Officio


You were sitting beside me in the law school corridor?young again, as vivid as your infamous blue eyes. Mark, I wanted to say, we?ve been divorced for ten years?but I knew you wouldn?t believe me. Go get us a beer, you said. Typical. And when I rose to do your bidding, I felt that my body was slim and supple. I waited as the light behind the counter flickered and buzzed to fluorescent life, revealing?you.

no more dead
than this new moon
the past
