My Friend Danny

by Xavier Toby

Now we're nearly thirty and still friends. He gives me drugs for free. That's not the only reason we're friends but without them, I wouldn't make the effort. When I'm high I promise to pay him, but later he never asks. We often plan to hang out during the day, without the drugs, but that never happens. Maybe we're terrified it won't be any fun.
