the only movie we ever saw together

she doesn't remember,
claims it was some other girl
to whom I am referring, 
but she is wrong. 

it was at the theater
in Union Square, of course,
and she suggested a sad
foreign film, while I suggested
an unknown indie comedy,
starring Steve Carrell and Toni Collette.

any time I've seen the film
on basic cable, it has made
me nostalgic for escalators,
and now she doesn't remember.
