Duppy

by Johnson Pflugrad

I met a girl my first night here
It was cold and I was drunk
Every single step came with a frigid breeze

She liked what my sweater said
She seemed nice, but out of breath
I promised her I’d walk her to the party

Everything I said made her smile
So we sat down a talked for a while
She said she’d never met someone like me

I got a weird feeling inside my chest
Like a thousand butterflies trying to leave
She asked me if everything was okay

I let her know that I was fine
But maybe we should go somewhere quiet
She held my arm as we walked

The streets were still and mostly wet
I didn’t know how long we had slept
She gave me a kiss as I looked around
