Friendships based on material 
Strength have nothing on the establishment. 
Sorry, youth, the numbers 
Are out of service. Huge holes 
Where the seasons were, back when we ignored 
Winter bells breaking down 
Housing towers, among other soft 
Eruptions from the State. Or was it prevention 
We were after, factors within our control? 
Whatever, youth, it’s all yours now, 
Yours to be alone with, and with each other’s 
Reaffirming states of being.
