That’s What Friends are For

Please stop bitching
about your boyfriend
when you’re with me.
I get that you’re unhappy
and need to vent sometimes
and it’s true we’ve always shared everything
for ever
but keep your negative opinions about your lover
away from my ears.

I don’t need you spewing venom
on the one who spews upon you.
I don’t need any more ammo against him
nor do I need to be convinced
that you two needn’t be.
So please
please let it be.

Find another outlet for your frustration.
We can chat about other topics
but if I hear any more
about how he does you wrong
like some old scratchy song
from some once upon,
I’ll either scream
or beat him
or kiss you
something possibly more appropriate.

It’s just
I could do without certain ideas
creeping in my head
like what happened last Thursday
after the Spingarn show.
Things have been different since then
and maybe they shouldn’t be.

keep your opinions about your fellow
to yourself
or maybe your therapist.
Do not
let me get my hopes up.
