Friend


A chance, a glance, a dance –
And you’re a friend.
A wine or two: an instant brew
Of old regrets and new
Now mixed in a heady cocktail
Of disco lights and checkered steps –
A garrulous guttural expulsion
Of past lives’ escapades.
A shared osmosis:
Stupefied, brilliant understanding
Of the ways of the world
And carefree, careless steps
Into the void,
Back from the brink.

Yes, you’re a friend.

Facebook says so,
And They must know.
