Harbourwalk Poem W188

What is the word for
People willing or wanting
To be friends with you –
So long as your friendship does
Not evolve past preset points?

Notes to this poem…

It’s like the threshold for belonging. You can be friends to some decent extent, but you’ll never feel like you belong.

The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
