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
option scenarios ran through my head:
is he still alive? faked his death to get out of...?
a friend of his who knows his accounts?
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
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...
