dead friends @ 08:40 pm




last week
I logged into yahoo messenger
which I nearly never use
and there was a from my friend Rick

who has been dead two years, I think

immediately
option scenarios ran through my head:
is he still alive? faked his death to get out of...?
no.
a friend of his who knows his accounts?
his wife?
Why?

but the reasons didn't matter
it just made me miss him
in the way we can only miss the dead

a few more things to say
a few more things to do together
never gonna happen

lately
many friends have had friends and relatives die
and it's set me to wondering how I'd feel
... and Rick wasn't a close friend...
but a glorious monster
I was happy to know was extant...

well...
back at ya
I'm here

Thanks
