The Irony of Unlikely Friendships, or so

We cannot choose our friends.

Friendship is a linking

between a heart

and a heart.

Not a liking because

but a liking despite.

A ready embrace regardless

of who, with whomever anywhere anytime.

A recognition and a response regardless

of whatever had

for whenever.

Because the link, if true, stays.

Forgotten for a while, maybe.

But stays.

Because, just because,

we dared to be honest

that a link is forging.
