Old Friends
It's good to talk to old friends. It's good to hear one's partner talking to old friends. It's good to have old friends.

I loved talking to JS tonight. I was compelled to write something about it too. It made me feel very grounded in me. Really nice. I miss that kind of conversation.

It was great talking with you guys, too. As my friend Fred says, "you can't make old friends."

XO,

The Lover Pleads with His Friends for Old Friends

Though you are in your shining days,
Voices among the crowd
And new friends busy with your praise,
Be not unkind or proud,
But think about old friends the most:
Time's bitter flood will rise,
Your beauty perish and be lost
For all eyes but these eyes.

-- W. B. Yeats

Ha! Speaking of old friends. I didn't know you that well but I very much remember your dancing presence at a party at G and C's where I stayed in the backroom coloring with crayons, getting high, and watching the back of your jeans as you danced with C.

That was my evil doppelgänger. I was home studying!

There's sweetness in each bitter bite
Of days remembered: waning, slight
of handsome summer friends on strand
arrayed, impervious to fright.

Dock Severance Pay

You've stumped the band with that one. Stephen Spender (speaking, a few comment threads back [on T. Gunn], of "backward sons")?
