The two young teenage boys
sitting in front of the theater
with their skateboards,
waiting for one of their dads
to swing by and pick them up.
The one, with such a
young fresh face, asking,
“Is she still dating that guy?”
“I saw them together I think, yeah.”
There was quite a pause.
“Tell me how sad they are.”
Both of them staring straight ahead
looking out at the new world
until his dad pulls up in his car.
"I don't know, Dude.
They looked pretty happy to me."
