Lou Reed Tee
by Sparks In Shadow
Cass had 13 cents and a pair of scissors in his back pocket. He was hoping Val would say yes, but it wasn’t looking good.
He felt pathetic, grabbing shears and forgetting paper, so he scanned pavement for scraps while walking across town to wait on her lawn.
Deciding against newsprint, brown bag, plastic sack dancing in breeze, he took off ‘Lou Reed’s face on black cotton tee’ and kissed him goodbye.
A minute before midnight, Val squealed with delight, wearing the newly sleeveless shirt with Lou Reed fringe and coins tied in at the neck.
She said, “Hell yeah.”
