A. Gold Standard

Thank you.
I don’t say it enough.
I probably don’t say it ever
except sarcastically
or when you pay for my lap dance.

You’ve been a good friend
and I have not been vocal about that.
I don’t think I’ve been cognizant of the fact
considering what a bad friend I am
considering what a bad person I am
considering what a bad sample of fauna
I have proven to be.

It’s rare moments that I reach this level
of self-awareness
and rarer still that I share it
and pretty much never that I pull out my checkbook when it happens so thank god I’m not that far gone
but I wanted to thank you for being there for me
because it can’t be easy
and I wish I had ever done anything
at all
to deserve it.
