I passed her by
once in a time.
The one eye looking inward.
It has been years ago.

She could have been Renee,
freckles replaced by time,
overlapping memories
and puffy seams.

It was in a store.
She was carrying a tray
gold laced
and glass bottom.

"I knew you during the day."
- thoughts
...in a glance -
as she passed by.
