Sunday Poem


The friends I friended do not show.
One by one, yellow leaves, they text
—the snow, the snow, the snow, the snow—
sad emoticons of their faces.

One by one, down an arpeggio, they text
See you Monday. I will face them and
as always and and my face.
I'll say, Forget about it. I understand.

On Monday I will have to face them and
the snow, the snow, the snow, the snow.
I'll say, Forget it. Really. I understand
the friends I friended did not show.
From Personals (2012) by Ian Williams.
