Flame

They bumped quite by accident;
awkward pause on recognition
small talk, short walk
as if nothing had transpired
How many years has it been?
since "they" had expired ...
Exchanging vague promises
to catch up, to sup ...

He spied the ring on the other's finger
and each smile was a knife in his heart.
