Jeffrei always could run better than me
always could kick harder, jump higher
score more goals, win more races.

I spent my childhood trying to be Jeffrei.

And then I met Anaias
who could run even faster, jump even higher
and I realized that Jeffery was not asking to be chased-

All he had needed from me was my friendship.
