Are You Happy for Other Couples?

I look at people holding hands in the hallways, and I try to think about how it all works. At the school dances, I sit in the background, and I tap my toe, and I wonder how many couples will dance to “their song.” In the hallways, I see the girls wearing the guys’ jackets, and I think about the idea of property. And I wonder if anyone is really happy. I hope they are. I really hope they are.

  1. I'm happy up to a point then I'm just sad that I'm not a "couple". I've stopped counting the number of wedding receptions I've been to in the last several years. After a while it gets old!
