Here was my plan for a cheap date:

Peppermint schnapps (generic, from Costco) and
a long walk through the park in the still falling snow

She did not have
a tattoo on her wrist that read
I taste every word I read with my fingertips

She did not have
a scarf that was
violet, dark blue, yellow and orange

She did not have
a homemade crystal pyramid in her freezer,
waiting for just the right moment.

I made all of that up,
trying to get her to go with me
on that First Snow night.

The back of her coat, soaking wet,
took hours to dry.
