Are you indeed my friend ?
Let us for some time believe so
Or for convenience
I have forgotten what friendship means
Perhaps someone can remind me
I have been to long in the world to believe in love
And also too long not to
I know too much about how people use other people
Or one another
It’s just another word one uses
Let it be
We shall see
So how are you today ?
And what can we talk about ?
I could tell you about how I made yogurt
Or how two young people eloped
And got married today
It’s quite inconvenient , but there it is
It may not matter to you
How does it matter to me either ?
But it passes the time
Perhaps it’s time for tea
Shall we ?
