Friends

There’s a battery being charged somewhere

There’s a card being hit for boots

and a jacket


There’s a guy with the 15th beer in his hand,
and he provides for all. And loves.

And?

There’s a dusty Friend...dying in family decline

There’s a trusty Friend...swaying on the vine


There’s a Friend—a friend! who needs


There’s a Friend, posting (this Friend bleeds)


There’s a Friend, hiding (this Friend just breathes)



There’s a Friend working out the End,

But there’s a Friend at….mere Begin


There’s a Friend who’s jaded,

a Friend who’s seen it All.


There are Friends who are tired.


But there are new Friends


There is a Friend who winces at Loss.

There are Friends with strong shoulders who give a Damn.


There is a battery to be charged out there,
I’ll see to it.


And there are new Friends.


Time makes Friends.



May we all have Time.

Two things.

The cooler: I plead the 5th.

Friends: I miss y'all.
