Purple instead of blue - Andy N

I'm told your daughter
sat in front off me
is wearing
a blue Denim jacket
but it looks purple
to me.

Purple as like the sky.

Purple as like the light shirts
my beloved
Manchester City

Purple as my ex's
pet cat,

Purple as the sea
which we walked on
last month
where I fell asleep
and woke up
looking like a lobster
and couldn't sleep
on my stomach
for two nights after.

Purple as your daughter's
Denim jacket
who looks at me
with a cruel like stare
after you try to tell her
about me
and she says
'You're Weird'.

And I nearly say
in response
well, it wasn't my
choice to be born
