A Story of Boy Meets Girl

Mychael Danna

This is a story of boy meets girl

The boy, Tom Hanson of Margate, New Jersey
Grew up believing that he'd never truly be happy
Until the day he met "the one."
This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music
And a total misreading of the movie 'The Graduate'

The girl, Summer Finn of Chennicok, Michigan
Did not share this belief
Since the disintegration of her parents' marriage
She'd only loved two things;
The first was her long, dark hair
The second was how easily she could cut it off
And feel nothing

Tom meets Summer on January eighth
He knows, almost immediately
She is who he's been searching for

This is a story of boy meets girl
But you should know upfront
This is not a love story
