148/365: Parker Posey Girlfriend Photo

I used to know a man
who carried a picture of an actress
in his wallet.

I wanted that photo and plotted to steal it,
carefully watched his wallet move from hand to pocket,
and waited for him to slip up.

I wanted to know what it felt like
to hold the picture without the plastic sleeve,
to feel the crease that ran soft through her hair.
