Third Wheel

You walk into the library,

glance over at the music section.

You look through the magazines.

You even sit at a desk and pretend to study.

You ask the librarian where you can find The Giver.

She says something odd:

Did you find your friend?

Then she points upstairs.

On the second floor,

you pass by the computers.

Kids checking their Facebook.

More kids in line waiting

to check their Facebook.

In the Biography section

you see an old man

reading The Tipping Point.

You walk down the last aisle,

Teen Fiction,

and come to the reason you’re here.

You remove the book

from the shelf.

And there,

behind the last row of books,

you find

the “friend”

the librarian was talking about.

Only she’s not your friend

and she’s kissing

your brother.
