the meeting

we exchanged greetings      
eyes connecting  
you leaned toward me  
 checked my name tag    
your jaw dropped  
as it dawned on us then that  
we knew each other  
back when we were young     
memories flooding our minds      
not a word spoken of them      
except for your mournful ohhhhs      
as you noticed I no longer    
wore a wedding band    
your wide-mouthed grin      
spoke volumes      
as did your eyes that      
at first stared rigidly      
at me until they      
grew so big they looked      
like they could pop out      
of your head      
I slipped my tongue  
towards my upper lip  
then you beat on your      
puffed up chest      
with the fist of one hand      
grinning mischievously at me    
we both laughed      
when you shook      
your rear from side to side      
then our eyes locked      
you winked and      
flashed me that      
familiar smile      
then with lips closed      
nostrils flaired you drew in      
my scent not once      
but twice as though      
you were savoring it      
and saving it      
to take along with you
