elegy to a friend's sanity.

>>degree, permitted, laugh, indifference, hanging

the temperature between your body and mine was a single degree difference, same with our schooling. I know it's not right to assume but I was eight and you were cold,
laughter is permitted here because the prompt says so.
mom picked me up from school and wondered why my eyes looked like that. If I told her the truth would you still be indifferent?
she says it's been a long time since I've seen you last but she knows how the coffee cup still shakes in my hands, she's asked about my eyes for ten and a half years but not before she says the name, "dad".
if I told her the truth you would be left hanging.
