Pick Me Up a Flower This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Pick me up a flower,
not a rose or an orchid,
don't buy it,
I only want one.
Pick me up a flower,
off the side of the road,
from a meadow,
I don't care,
I only want one.
Fine, don't pick me up a flower,
buy one for someone else,
buy her a dozen long stem roses,
wrap them in crinkly plastic,
give her all the flowers you can buy,
all the flowers in the world,
I only wanted one,
just one.
