Birthdays, Bagels And Smiles

What do you want

For my birthday

She asked,

What do you

Want for mine

He replied,

Although neither

Answered they

Appeared to know

The answers,

Unlike the rest

Of us left standing

In the dark

Wondering,

Watching them

Nibble their bagels

And smile sweetly

At each other

With knowing smiles.
