Can Men And Women Be Close Friends?


Her message was loud and clear:
Keep your distance.
We're just friends.

I guess now getting to
know women should come
with a warning label.

or maybe I'll just wear
yellow tape on my body
to indicate that I could be

dangerous because of
the scant chance I may
want to know more.

Or maybe I'll just
go out in the world
inside a bubble,

keeping me a safe distance
away from any contact.
Because I'm finding

getting too close
may be bad for
my health.
