you are as treacherous as a spring thaw



false and eloquent behind someone's back

and full of poor excuses

as you evade showing even the rudiments

of civility

(not even a card of condolence after a death

in the family)

but "oh I'm so sorry...words cannot say...

I was stressed...I was having a hard time...

oh I'm not such a good friend am I?"


you're not

which is why it's so easy now to dismiss you

say what you will

(you're so brave when the subject isn't present)

but you don't know

how small you look

and how faint your sound
