We Friends.

We Friends.

full up on chocolate cake and coffee;

jokes stuck between lips

humming,

“Nah. Nah. Nah. That one staying right here.”

We friends

sharp and edgy,

soft and tender;

holding

mouthfuls of

dread and joy

while breakfasting on

chocolate cake and coffee

We friends

outrageously loud

hopelessly silent

holding the love

between disparities

while lunching on

chocolate cake and coffee

We friends

gorgeously rebellious

strutting giant portions

of sweetness

caught between a laugh and a gloom

while suppering on

chocolate cake and coffee

We friends

holding whispered riddles

sealed between

secrets;

the good, the brave, the wretched;

murmuring antidotes

of bliss and rage

sorrow and love

dread and joy

while dreaming on

chocolate cake and coffee
