A picture of Shasta daisies hangs above my toilet
Purchased for two dollars at the thrift shop

Now they are in my garden too
Purchased for three dollars from the discount rack at Lowes

I bought the picture because
It made me think of Mount Shasta and
The first real camping trip I ever took  
With you

I bought the flower because they were on sale and
Not dead and
I like daisies

I wrote this poem
Shortly after midnight
Shortly after I realized that the daisies in the picture
Were the daisies in my garden and
Twelve years after our first date
Because I needed to write a poem on Monday and

I can’t go to the thrift store
Lowes or
To bed

Without thinking about you
