I am asking,
for a friend

how do you get up in the morning
when there is nowhere to go?

I am asking,
for a dear friend

where do you find warmth
when hugs are a threat?

I am asking,
for a really close friend

how do you keep it together
when we must all stay apart?

But seriously,
if anyone wants to connect

I am asking
for a friend.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause. Thank you, Iz.
