sometimes
she
says
i'm falling in love with you
he jumps off the cliff into the water
she was frightened of heights and water
that
is
the
way
it
goes
sometimes
he

her
favorite
fruit
was
mango
she
would
lick
the
juice
from
her
fingers
as
she
carefully
peeled
away
the
exotic
skin
with
a
six
inch
blade
on
her
stoop
in
the
kitchen
beneath her black leather jacket was her golden heart
she
was
an
actress
saw a shrink twice a week
worked
in a what she called a titty bar to pay for the shrink
as
she
w
a
i
t
e
d
for
that
call
from
her
agent
the mangos were always ripe and sweet    ....

she
convinced
him
to
go
to
a
buddhist
meditation
she
had
charm
so
he
accompanied
her
incense
perfumed
the
room
candles
flicked
as
they
are
prone
to
do
there
was
a
certain
quietude
as
the
meditation
began
she
sat
beside
him
lazily
casually
looking
about
the
room
he
whispered
to
her
aren't you going to meditate
no
need
she
said
i
am
already
a
buddha
t
h
a
t
was
their
last
outing .....
