you didn’t ask so I didn’t say

chance meeting in the coffee shop

so many years later

after I’d fucked up my job

got in a row with an idiot

so they’d let me go

& you were my friend

some kind of mate

who dropped me like a hot stone

& here we are saying hello

as if all that never happened

no whatever did you do?

& I don’t talk of how I bounced back

went on to bigger better things

found there was life elsewhere

but took the lesson learned with

we talk of other things

our loves our lives in general

& you didn’t ask anything

of any real importance

so I didn’t tell

& left with no new news of you

but still felt

I knew exactly who you were
