Small Talk: Super Short Story #577

Small Talk: Super Short Story #577     

He usually does not catch the attention of friends
bumped into unprepared,
to save them trouble of obliged small talk,
which as if interrupts their lives
with whatever was going on.

It was not because he was unfriendly,
as he is the sort of friend who cares,
even when seemingly not caring,
who does not want to trouble,
but willing to save friends from trouble.
