perhaps more
than any of it

education and
income brackets,
more than
compatibility and
the stars, more
than all the
coincidences
and preferences,

there is something to
childhood friends –
rock, paper, scissors –
agreeing to one-up
each other for the
rest of eternity,
building strength
to face the rest of it all

in two hour’s time,

in two hour’s time,
we are bridging ten years, still
sharing similar

this morning, after
19 years, you
reached out

happy birthday
and to let me know
your mother

yesterday,
