And I find the place,so the instructions she gave me at the MDR were good. Upstairs, we drink our tea sitting on the floor, the lackof any furniture except a thin pallet proof of her strictattention to detail, like the pale rose climbing her facewith a soft glow that’s kissable. But she knew I would. After we dress, though, there isn’t quite so much to say,and the hardwood floor lights up as the room darkens.All at once I remember a friend I’m supposed to meet. We’d planned to have dinner. We’ll do that another day.The shine from the floor deepens as the room darkens.We hug goodbye in the alley. I walk out onto the street.     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20170729T235900; Christine Kanownik and Ron Horning
