A Supposedly Indiscriminate and Careless Comment

They were words
clearly aimed
shot over my left shoulder
in a supposedly indiscriminate and carless comment
but they were calculated
they were every bit the understated
terrible truth
that I had sought to hope against.

they were meant as a warning shot
a parting blow between two long-time friends
something that was meant to indicate
that circumstances had changed
a true and single message
chilling to behold.

And maybe they were just words
thought little about or for
given the time they took to say
and nothing ever more.
