This Is What Showing Up Looks Like I

You said that you were refraining from cursing, even though the word was right there on the tip of your tongue, locked behind the bars, known as your lips.

We were young in our friendships, so I did what I believed to be showing up for my friend in their time of need. So like children, one afraid to utter such words and other who is filled with glee and excellent.


There ya go, if you need me to say any other words on your behalf, I got you.

You looked at me and I at you, while at the red light and burst into laughter.

Quietly to myself I thought, this is one way of showing up for a friend.
