Purple

He decided it was time to make a big change
how one lives when they remember they are alive
he tucked the guilt beneath his chin
slept through years of whiskey slop.
He took a purple haired girl on two dates
bought her pancakes suffocating in strawberry syrup
and showed unsmiling pictures of her to his friends.
