Alex and I went to HyVee today,for ice cream, popsicles, and hot fudge,
we were going to get milk too,
but it was too late for me to get drunk,
because you know what I like to drink,
Kahlúa and milk,
Occasionally with a little RumChata,
I wanted to get drunk so I could hopefully sleep tonight,
Without the ache of missing you crippling my brain and my heart.
We picked out our ice cream, popsicles, and hot fudge,
and made our way to the cash register,
then I saw these blue orchids,
Big, Blue, Boisterous orchids,
and I saw your face in the blooms,
heard your laugh as we got closer to them,
and then I saw the price tag,
I know $35.00 isn’t that expensive,
and I wouldn’t have had a problem paying that price for these orchids,
they were so beautiful,
but right now I am extremely broke,
and I won’t get any money until the first of May.
I don’t know if you like orchids or not,
but these blue orchids at HyVee,
they should be called “Tonys”,
because they made me remember everything you are,
and they were so beautiful,
and they were so alive,
just like you.
Alex and I checked out, paid, and made our way out,
I couldn’t take my eyes off those bright blue orchids,
and hopefully tonight they’ll grace my dreams,
and hopefully tonight I’ll see you there.
