The in between

I revel in the in between, the moments
that cling to my swiftly failing memory 
like a sock from the dryer that refuses to unhand
my shirt — something electric to embrace
the shocking windfall overtaking me.

I feel fortune’s stroke in this,
a lamp post spotlighting those moments — 
unforgettable dots on a map 
they blur past scurrying to the flashier dots,
leaving the in between her to us.
