Are we not those friends?

I ran into my friend at the library yesterday
one of my no-bullshit friends —of course
we were both at the library


She looked ashamed —how


to convey that though I do appreciate
the recognition that shame
is the conventionally expected


response when one runs into someone whose
messages one has not been returning —between
us not


necessary.
why


take offense at bouts of anti
socialness? where I have been myself more
times than I can count  —I know


the necessity when emerging from
such bouts of a friend who will pick
up with you where you left off  —with no


punitive throughmotiongoing recompensorial
formalities. Are we not

those friends?
