it was freezing and I was walking to work
a man living on the street was all bundled up
hey purple tie man!
I said hey
that's a great color. it was my mom's favorite color. till she passed.
I said yeah, it is a great color
we walked together
now it's my color. I took it on. after she passed.
I said well, purple's a great color
and tried to improve my sentence with a smile
he nodded his head and slowed down
I heard change rattle in his McDonalds cup as he stopped
I said sorry, I don't have anything on me
which was true
but he just smiled
have a nice day
I said you too
but as I rounded the corner
I realized he never asked for anything
and probably just wanted to talk about his mom
