3030 Poetry Challenge Day 21

Prompt for today is : this round

I must admit Im struggling now, but I’m hoping there are lines and thoughts in amongst all this that could become decent poems further down the line.

Old Friends

We have an unspoken rule
that we don’t do rounds of drinks.
An understanding that finances are strained,
each in a different direction,
a different shape,
and that’s how we maintain the grouping.
Moving and easing and shifting
and giving,
like an old house on a hill, shifts
with whatever the elements throw at it.
We shift, we come together.
We endure.
