we don't need to be in love




we can hold hands
find shapes in the clouds
and share stories
of our most embarrassing moments
as the offspring of suburbanites

we can play twenty questions
and word association
or tie flowers together
to make necklaces that make us sneeze

we can make up superhero identities
then plot our escape from some super villain
and save the world side by side

we can catch caterpillars
and guess what they'll look like as butterflies

we can be friends
