Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Friend

I
At one point or another, it becomes apparent what is truly needed

II
The people are singing
The friends must be together

III
When one prevents the occurrence
of another
the truest is known

IV
Between one or two
I’d choose one
as they often prove
to be more worthy than two

V
Through the fog
and the pain
the loss
and the gain
they will take part

VI
Whether
musical
artistic
or analytic
that friend will always
understand

VII
Years will pass
times will change
altered scenery will resound
through new visionary glares
but all will live on
despite the length
of time apart

VIII
Flipping through the pages
as images bring
memories
for all to see
birthdays
holidays
celebrations
reunions are born

IX
Skating
through parks
Sliding
on lawns
Whispering
at parties
Screaming
at night
They will do it with you

X
Overheard
Listening in
Eavesdropping
all for one reason
They ask who’s
to blame
when you show up
streaming
so they can
go hunting


XI
Gone for
long
or around
forever
words
continue
to flow
despite
knowing
it all

XII
In the dark
through the light
images shine
into our eyes
colors vibrate
brightful blasts
blinding beauty
of the one who sits
beside me
flashing messages
tasteful melodies
reverberate between us

XIII
As the seasons change
and the people move away
that friend will stick to you
making snow angels
in the fresh green grass
until the sun sets
or the moon shines
the snow falls
and the rain subsides
collecting
or building
sand castles
out of snow

You Tell Me

the weight of your disguise
pulls me deeper
as attempts to pull you out
diminish

the devastation in your veins
illuminates the clouds
through torn and
shredded flesh

cringing at the thought of your
indecision
your stability is fleeting

tension strikes the timeless clock
enveloped in your
destructive
vulnerability

slick as silicone
the pulse of fluffy pancakes...
silence was a
stunning perfection
