A New Friend


Tell me something less significant,
Something about our biology, for instance,
About what you hear while sitting under the tree,
About lonely lions in the prairies;
Forget decorated generals;
Tell me about Private Ryan,
Tell me something only you know
And make a new friend.

    Tell me something only you know Beautiful thought and phrase that open the door to an intimate friendship, not just a mere encounter with banal pharses of everyday said by and to everyone. (Report) Reply

Amongst the flowers I
