Could it be
that dear friend Kevin
is growing past his high school experience
his high school peer group
those dear loved ones
who seem so close
and yet feel so distant (too many times)?
Could it be?
Something tells me it’s happening.
It shows in the way
Kevin’s expressions about himself/herself,
me & others
have become so much simpler
It’s scary and yet it attracts and excites me.
My self-interest pulses with visions
of all those high school peers
threatened with exposure to real communication
from an involved and caring friend.
Hat damn! Kevin Give it To Us!
