All That We Can Ask

The actor police captain said,
“Thank you for the friendship.”
The other actor,
an older lieutenant,
possibly considering retirement,
said to his superior officer,
“If it lasts.”
Yes, isn’t that all
that we can ask
for it to last…?
But there is always,
always that whiff
of the ever present “if.”
