Apart, by The Cure, for an absent friend.
One More Time, by The Cure, for Mikhail.
Unwanted, by Avril Lavigne, for Manda. (And Mikhail, honey, we wreak havoc when we're in the mall and Avril is playing. Singing at the top of our lungs, not caring who hears or what. It is not good for those around us when Manda an' me have artists from the mainstream in our musical repertoire!)
yet deign i embrace you with meek adoration?
your fragile humanity rised with contrition.
