he's the quiet one. standing in a doorway. i ask if i can take his picture. he says no. i nod and walk on.
she calls after me "you can take my picture."
she has a tattoo like a vine under her right eye. and hair like a boy. beautiful like she's hiding it.
steve's her friend. he says he's from massachusetts. he's beautiful too. been on the road only a few months. says it's ok if i take his picture.
her name is carley.
i say my ex was named carley. she smiles; like i remember.
