She was a Swedish
translator whose name

I don’t remember,
but I liked her, half

smashed in a little black
dress, even as she

raised her glass
to bash the man

I’d soon take back,
& marry--too

macho! This time
of year I think of her.

Hilary Sideris is the author of Most Likely to Die (Poets Wear Prada, 2014) and The Inclination to Make Waves (Big Wonderful, 2016). Her collection Un Amore Veloce will be published by Kelsay Books in 2019.
