Pete’s Love Story

in a tear drop necklace and cherry-tinted earrings,

with hair far-too-showered and makeup-far too-done for a Sunday morning,

she ordered the fruit.

he, unapologetically, chose the biscuits & gravy

and paid the bill.

he is still unapologetic and she is still obsessively mismatched,

yet Pete is certain they could still rock a great next date.

this time he would take a bite; his nerves would be gone.

her ego would be done and she would steal from his plate.
