Fabricated Friendship

I know little about friends since so few are available
that are reliable enough to earn my complete trust.
Oh sure, there are galleries of them that will clutter
together in good times and eat up all the corn.  But
when the corn is gone they won't be around to replant.

I have a special dislike for those that claim to love
and admire then disappear in caravans when they hear
the tamborines of greed calling to feed their egoes.
It is just a paper machet smile and match book warmth
they offer mixed with glitter disguised emptiness.

Above all friendship is honor and devotion that trumps
your wants and should require all your resourses to
support a friend in times of need for as long as it
takes.  If you cannot meet this requirement gladly
then you are not a friend,  you are just a parasite
that will eventually scream regret when you are
kicked to the curb in the same style you perfected.

burning the late night candle

Maybe I will just keep my hands filled with Hershey Kisses they are easier to catch
and stick with your ribs better.

mist rises, swirling
as darkness obscures daylight
smelling wood smoke

That's a lot of 'back whens'. You brought back my own share of memories and they're sort of similar to yours.
I wouldn't be too worried about not being able to catch those flies in your hand anymore.   wink*

Back When

I would like to return to the time when nature smiled
upon my face and my body was hard as a kitchen table top.
Back when people said I looked like Dean Martin, they
stretched some but not like across the grand canyon.

Back when girls would put an extra swivel into their
hips when they saw me coming.  I could do the splits,
run the mile, and ride a 30 minute moto on a dirt track.
I could write 3 poems in a day and catch flies in my hand.

My address book lived inside my head and I did not need
much food to prosper.  I could convince my mother that
every girl I dated was a good church girl like she wanted.
Back when marriages lasted more then five years.

Back when most jobs could last long enough to retire and
get that pension and gold watch. When medicine was affordable
and doctors looked at you like a human being instead of cash.
Back when you held your dance pardner close and knew her name.

Hello Daisy,  I tried attaching the audio and it would not accept it then I noticed it only takes Gif and Jpg files, audios are MP3. 

So I guess it is only for pictures.
