she is my friend who

hears my unspoken words as loudly as those drawled,

celebrates dreams as though they are real,

pursues me as if i am worthy,

challenges me with ancient words,

opens her veins and splashes blood mixed with tears,

vaults my secrets behind keyless doors,

laughs at me and with me,

spins and twirls and dips to life’s dance

and tells me “Yes, you look fat in those pants.”
