February 21st

I see a text
from a friend,
“Tonight I really feel like
a bon fire.”

I sense the Universe
pulling us together,
and so I say,
“why not?”

I hear cracking wood,
soul secrets
and sorrowful, yet silly songs.
Our friendship is fueling the fire.

Two more join us
as we consume
toasted, sugary
confections.

We feel,
and agree
F words can be
good words.
