The question


The question untangled itself
from the rest of the article’s text,
hopped down from my computer screen
and has followed me around ever since,
asking:
        Would you rather have loyal friends
        or interesting friends?

As I child, I blindly chose loyalty
– on principle, I thought.
Now I wonder if it wasn’t more
about safety
and comfort
and the immense gratification
of believing you’re the interesting one.
