‘Something For Emily’

To never make a lot of friends,

 though enemies were scarce


And keeping both arm’s length away,

my words alone repaired


Splitting the difference tween comrade and foe,

the measurement obscured


One to the other, together as one

—my loneliness endured


(Berkshires: January, 2015)
