Hi! I’m Olga Alexandru, a poet, writer, zine maker and marketing professional. Welcome to my website!


He didn’t even remember me, instead, giving me the practiced customer service smile. His hair was bigger and whiter. He finally had his teeth capped. Before, we would talk about his yellow-brown teeth and how much they disgusted us. They made his smile sinister.His new white ones were a big improvement. His wife was there too, with her hair pulled into a tight bun. So tight in fact, I assumed that was her trick to looking ageless, that’s how her skin was so stretched. I buy an overpriced sandwich. And a cranberry yogurt muffin. The special muffin. The reason I’m really here. I look at the muffin and wonder if it will be as good as I remember. This is what I’ve been doing. Revisiting the past to convince myself it existed. Trying so hard not to forget things that never mattered. Storing it all up for a rainy day. I look across at the bagel place  and wonder if I’ve made a big mistake.
