A Hipster Love Poem in Three Acts

The Sincere Version

Some I love

Once gave me an orchid

I killed it, by accident

I put one of the flowers inside a large book

Now it is the most beautiful,

delicate

secret little thing

The Snarky Version

A bi-curious guy I once loved

Gave me an orchid

I killed it, by accident (I swear)
(even though I followed all the instructions on

YahooAnswers)

I put one of the flowers inside the book I was reading, a rather pretentious 1,000 page book that is pretty much considered a modern classic and makes you appear super smart when you carry it on the L Train

(which I eventually finished, a-hem)

Now it is the most beautiful

delicate

secret little thing

And I still admire it

Even though he kind of phased me out and I think is now engaged to a girl who works at Sea World?

***

The Compromise/The Truth

Someone I love(d)

once gave me an orchid

I killed it, by accident

(even though I followed all the instructions on YahooAnswers)

I put one of the flowers

inside my copy of Infinite Jest

Now it is the most beautiful

delicate

secret little thing
