I had a bajillion friends, till

It slowly came to light that

My friends were all broken

I cast them aside one by one and

Vowed to find new friends

Friends without flaws

Or cracks

Unbroken friends

Friends who were worthy

Unpugnacious friends

Friends lacking relentless bellicosity

Friends who do not play accordions

Or banjos

Friends who are not always flat broke, busted, looking to borrow money

I have a dog around here somewhere

  1. Is this one of your siesta sonnets? 😉
    I enjoyed the simple gentility and flow, and then the unexpected quip at the end…Made me laugh!

    1. Siesta Sonnet is a spectacular turn of phrase.I might start using it, if you don’t mind.
      I just fired the kiln so I have some time to read and write, I hope.I have lots of catching up to do.

    1. “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”
      I think that was Groucho Marx
