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,
        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.
