friends

i am of a mind
to swing into lives
and swing out again
like some relational chimpanzee
who only ever loved
a single, solitary tree
at the cost of the jungle
and the dark terrors within

i am of a mind
to howl into the night,
content to hear inviting screams
of distant ones responding,
never getting closer
than an echo of an echo
