We are constantly celebrating romantic love. But, when was the last time we took the time to thank our friends for their love, support and companionship? We Go Together! A Curious Selection of Affectionate Verse by Calef Brown is a book that celebrates friends, friendships, and all its novelties.

Through eighteen smart, quick and thoroughly enjoyable poems, Brown focuses on the often-overlooked qualities of friendships. Ordinary moments are celebrated and Brown’s verse has a special quality of transporting the reader – regardless of age – back to those innocent moments we have all shared with loved ones.

BACKUP*

 If someone makes a crack

or puts me down,

you back me up

and stick around.

Always there

when I get in a tangle.

I lean on you

at a steep angle –

I’m so inclined.

A better friend

I’ll never find.

So after shopping for chocolate and flowers for your sweetheart, take a few moments to get a copy of We Go Together! for your best friends – the people who have always been there, and will continue to be long after those chocolates are gone.
