From a birthday card
You sing Jann Arden at karaoke like it really matters, like important people are watching. This speaks to something in you that’s superior to most people. You aren’t afraid to belt:
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive
You sit down next to me, after you’ve wrapped up and some bro in a pink tank top is trying to sing the Beastie Boys, and you’ve got tears in your eyes. I grab your face and kiss your nose. You are surprised, but you like it, and you tell me so.
“Are you gonna sing something?” You ask, swigging soda water.
“Yeah,” I say, “I absolutely am.”
