You don’t notice at first.Lunches at the local restaurants
Walks in the park
Games around the kitchen table
Then time stretches between phone calls.
Next thing you know you’re down to
the like button on Facebook posts.
Friendships are like favorite jeans,
once worn almost daily,
until they become faded, torn,
or stop fitting altogether—
to be put in the bottom drawer
with all the skinny jeans
with a wistful, someday…
