Levi

today’s
the birthday
of this dead
vegan guy
I met in 2011
at this hookah bar
the modern post.

he was great;
Full of life,
but seemed
so depressed.

His brother,
who looks like
a conehead,
works at a
Whole Foods now
and I see him
around.

They were
the first vegans
I ever met.

I used to think
all vegans
were aliens,
cone head or not.

levi and I
cuddled and
fell asleep on
an alignment
of chairs once.

He’d tell me
I was beautiful,
and ask me
to marry him.

he was like someone
took a five year old
and stretched him out
so he was taller.

I never really knew him
that well at all.
