I am your Impossible Friend

This poem is almost my life-theme, originally arising from my over-enthusiastic ideas, initially for Russian artist-friend, Katya Zhu. But others have been inflicted with a similar enthusiasm as well. My many (sometimes zany) ideas have got me into (and sometimes out of) tight corners…

  • 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
    passionate pen, or laptop, to hand –
    (occasionally i am a bit sloppy!)
    my intentions not seeking attention

    but bridges might need to mending…

    i am your impossible friend

    how will you handle my intensity?
    are you dazed by my online onslaught?
    do you sometimes sigh with exhaustion?
    will you speak the truth in reply?
    ….scream or smile – just press send

    i am your impossible friend
