Valentines Day is for Friends

I’ve always believed that love stories should be written about friends.
The sweetness of their casual love,
the juiciness of their gossip
the thrill of sharing a meal.

There’s no ceremony, no legal process
no champagne
when someone enters your life and becomes
a lifelong friend.

But there is often celebration.

And meals. Lots of meals.
Babies, children, cats.
Books, films, music videos.

Friends are an archive
a witness
a board of experts
a think tank
a Greek chorus.

an inspiration

a comedy routine.

a home away from home.
