I said goodbye
because I wanted to--
there was nothing to be gained
by overstaying my welcome
and watching the warm friendly feeling
cool to a dismissed formality--

but then its so easy to be friendly
when you don't have to give of yourself
too generously--so easy to disregard the whole
charade of good company when it gets to close
for you to control--better hope that troll
to whom you're engaged will be endless in service

you might have to find out the hard way
you overspent your faux good will and better settle--
