(probably happened on may 8 2006)

Sophie scrawls love notes in stolen crayon
to the boy she's lost on all the lamposts.
Mark grips keychains marked with his girl's name
as if the keys they hold could open vaults.

They walk through parks and share their stories
of how their hormones drove them mad.
People pass by, unsympathetic.
They're teenagers.
They don't know a thing.
