I.
These hazy hours,
dozing off and on in the
company of friends,

II.
surreal six am
bedtime Bob Dylan peace of
knowing we’re alive,

III.
And in the morning
I made the coffee too strong
and we said goodbye

IV.
to the sweetness of
a midwinter’s weekend’s dream,
and of growing up.

I don't really get to hang-out that much with my friends. So envisioning what you portray here in this poem for is so enjoyable. I especially like the images of the strong coffee (I'm a coffee person; I think Dr. Drew might invite me to be on his rehab show; too bad it's canceled) and the image of Bob Dylan. I love his music. The images are peaceful. And frienship couldn't be better portrayed than here.
