TO JIMMY STAGNO, AS IF HE WERE STILL ALIVE
Copyright © 2018 by Marvin Cohen

Is your memory the same as mine? Oh that would be really fine
that our memories intertwine,
since friendship is a sharing
between two volitions on the same daring
as they go on eternally comparing,
so the conversation is endless
and we'll never be friendless,
having each other
as the mysterious other brother.
