The Grocery Store

April 2, 2020

I’m in a grocery store with a gorgeous girl
I say hello, and she says goodbye
I say hello again, and she says hi.

You call that a breakfast? I tease
staring at the pack of cigarettes and energy
drinks in her cart.

She says goodbye again, and I say hello
I say hi, and I ask her if she wants my number
while we’re waiting in line.

I’m in a grocery store with a gorgeous girl
who’s starting to get pissed off but she smiles
and I smile back, and she stares, and I say stop that.

She’s wearing a pink mickey mouse t-shirt
and I mention what a cool shirt she’s wearing
because I’m a big fan of people who like disney stuff.

You’re weird, she says it cold like the rain outside
and I say no I’m not raising the tray of eggs and syrup
and she says goodbye I’m not talking to you anymore.

I’m in a grocery store with a gorgeous girl
who’s really just my girlfriend who has a kink for
pretending that we’re strangers at the most random places.

She laughs, and I kiss her by the forehead
and I say hello, and she says goodbye
I say hello again, and she says hi.
