Shrunken and small

For Coral

I dreamed my friend was suicidal
So useless she said so useless
that I may as well just die
Shrunken and small she was
A little old nothing

When I told her the dream she said
yes shrunken and small that’s how I feel

I hope she soon feels better
Expands back into her everyday
tremendousness
