New Climbing Partner

16 May
friends saw us
said the two are like peas in a pod
looking at you said me
at me said you
together
the electric years
few
as close buddies
we
no inflation
or fluff
we shared the oof
the eyes lit up seeing you
sparkling back at me
but now
pffft
the flowers droop
withered

today we said
us breaks apart
the throb in the chest is turned downtempo
the binocular lenses smudged and cracked
at headbanger junction
but i'm not bummed
no whine with cheese
i'm bittersweet
but
the new siesta
not just me solo
going to
climb the blue mountains
partnering with the lively friend
not met
