The Promises You Make

To be friends forever

Don't seem so foolish anymore

You grow upwards and outwards

But still roll around on the floor

Armed from harm by the same five girls

Whose love only become more furious

More airtight

It's hard. You won't yet imagine how hard

It can be. But you won't lose your softness

And, on occasion, when you learn to love

The lamp lights like you used to love the stars

And your cocktail has a fat green olive

Life is like you imagine.
