I am your Impossible Friend

this poem is almost my life-theme, arising from over-enthusiastic ideas of mine for Russian artist-friend, Katya Zhu. like Don Quixote, my many and sometimes crazy ideas have got me into, and sometimes out of, tight corners, in personal relationships…

  • i am your impossible friend

    i send you endless ideas,
    many unasked for emails:
    i zealously promote you
    i will just not shut up about your gift
    ….but i will complicate your life no end

    i am your impossible friend

    i tread where angels fear to
    i jump into numerous cow pats –
    (aren’t my clay-feet so stylish?)
    i pray for your best & brightest future
    ….but i will bless your life no end

    i am your impossible friend

    i happily charge into windmills
    either pen or paint-brush to hand
    (occasionally i am a bit sloppy!)
    my intentions not looking for attention
    ….sometimes my wounds need time to mend

    i am your impossible friend

    how will you handle my intense personality?
    are you dazed by my irrepresible onslaught?
    (do you frequently sigh with exhaustion?)
    will you speak the truth in reply?
    ….scream or smile – just press send

    i am your impossible friend
