79 kicking the chair from under you, stoned and shaking, turning blue then purple, then slab white, the note left on the bar stool: I'm so sorry I was not strong enough--to fall back to earth gasping like the rest of us, your arms flying up. John Bensko The last time you saw her, the police were escorting her to their car. A nice word escort, and she shouted several others in a screaming growl that let you know she didn't care how quaint it was. She tossed her head so her orange cap flew and she tried to spit on them, on you. Now, she has the cap again, though more dirty, and you wonder if they retrieved it for her, or if later she came from jail and found it, with the tire and shoe marks that give it what some might 80 call character and others a sign of worse to fear. You still have time to change your plans, to run other errands, to pretend you don't see her, don't understand, don't care about what you know will happen when you reach her. You've forgotten some part of why you were headed her way.
