meeting the family

attending my first pride
this weekend
and I am
anxious

to check on
a junior high friend
who recently
lost her mother

to beat at boggle
the high school buddy
who’s been
kicking my ass at words

to catch up
with a college housemate
over coffee
and artisanal chocolate

to have them
gathered
around me
for the first time

to find out
if they all
know
the same person
