They walked nearly side by side
for the length of a New York block
He smelled her clean hair
still wet from the shower
She kept a fast pace
clearly hurried to get somewhere
He walked slightly slower
and she vanished on the street
into the crowd
She didn't remember him
or she chose not to acknowledge his presence
but they knew each other 
back in high school
They walked down the hall to their classes
the same way
but never together
