It’s 12:35 on a Wednesday
And your leaning against my red Subaru (mom’s),
Alternately taking puffs of Camel light (5th one today)
And bites of cheesy olive bread ($1.59 on sale at Safeway).
I can’t believe you’re getting an American flag tattoo
This weekend.
On your chest, for
Christ’s sake.
But then you glance at me over the collar of
Your blue Lacoste hoodie,
And I kind of forget what I was saying.

I really liked this poem. It made me stop and imagine being there, and I think that's how a poem's supposed to make you feel. Great job, and keep on writing.
