Poetry: “The Way Some Friendships End”

by: Yvette Nepper

I will spend a good part of today missing you

and your juicer

missing you calling beet juice with just a little bit of dill

the elixir of life

that I have to drink up

“drink it up quickly”

because it loses something important when it sits for too long.

Your lousy friend excuses would be good currency today

because I am rather soft with missing you

and your Kombucha lectures

and the way your apartment makes me feel rosy cheeked

and strong and active and fit

like I was a few years ago

and in certain pictures.
