Green

A crowded subway train.That’s exactly the color! The woman seated there by the corner is wearing a skirt just like mine! I wore a suit exactly the same shade of green.How long ago? It must have been in the late  80s. The day of the week was Friday, a Friday afternoon. I was so scared! I wanted to see him. I had to see him. My suit was made of wool and the best I could buy. He had to think I was in control, that I knew what I was going to tell him. I loved him as I had never loved before. I had not forgotten him. At least I wanted him to know that. No pressure, simply those words. We hadn’t seen each other in months. I had my own apt. I was independent. I had changed, changed for the better. An abrupt goodbye. That was it.
