The Hold-Steadys

It wouldn’t matter if we had been rooftop-stumbling

or facedown sinkwise,

we would hold steady.

It wouldn’t matter if we had been key-throwing

or dropdown red-wine-wise,

we would grip solid, I know —-

confirmed through one hundred tough conversations, two raccoons and a showered beer.

(Today, Reallys are my love affairs: Hold-Steadys are my friendships; and I hardly hold Eithers or Boths.)

in the current, and always, running…

Reallys: Jon Locker (I tell you and show you everything)

Hold Steadys: Jon Locker, James, Sarah, MB, Schafe (no matter what, we text each other the next morning)

Eithers: Jon Locker, James, Sarah, MB, Schafe (we hold no judgment through all the ups & downs)

Boths: Jon Locker (I tell you and show you everything, and no matter what, we text each other the next morning and hold no judgment through all the ups & downs)
