I Do

a reaction to a proposal

I saw a guy tonight, propose to a girl
on a dance floor on one knee. 

I saw the girl suddenly leave him
walking off briskly to make phone calls

the guy's excellent moment
cut short by the girl's enthusiasm. 

the ring suddenly much more 
valuable than the bearer. 

I saw the girl's friends 
blowing cigarette smoke

on the ring
as they examined it. 

I saw the guy 
realize what he had done. 

and I pitied him
as much as I envied him. 

The End
