    "can we be friends. afterwards, i mean"

    "i hope so"

the television drones on with some happy horseshit, the cat is on the
sofa with his head between his back legs licking his genitals.  lights
are on all over the house.  they do not speak.

she's ready to leave now.  she's wearing that long black coat with the
fur collar.  a coat that some of her friends abhor.  a coat that she
has always looked so fahn in.

    "do you think that we can still be friends?"

    "i hope so"
