A Toast to the Finest

By Hugh Blanton

A Toast to the Finest

We'll never know each other.
There's never a convention --
there's no secret handshake --
no slogan.

But to those who need no spouse --
who have no relatives --
who desire neither friends nor lovers --
who walk this solitary road --

from behind these walls
I drink to you tonight.
