On a couch

It's Saturday night. 
People are out. 
All over Australia they're out. 
People are meeting, forming friendships, relationships. 
People are fighting. People are dancing.
Drinking, drug taking, mistake making. 
They are the youth and they are alive. 

While his peers are out creating memories and reminding themselves that they are young and beautiful and alive, Alvin lies on a couch. Bad Saturday night television throws a lonely blue glow over his lounge room.
