I often think of Alice Li
-so much more mature than me-
the long-time couple,we almost were;
I smell star anise and think of her.
I never asked her, really, why
I got replaced by Vic, then Guy.
Perhaps I wasn't sophisticated,
in the two short months that we dated.
Although it's thirty years ago
-it really would be nice to know-
that as I think of Alice Li,
does she ever think of me?
