The fact that Sam showed us, that Dean and Cas always have a different kind of friendship.

The Man Who Was Thursday

       after G.K. Chesterton

fell in love
with a girl
who was Saturday.

She fell in love
with his falling
in love with her

Saturday boobs and her
Saturday laugh and her
Saturday way of not caring

that he was Thursday
because she liked
for the moment

his Thursday glasses and
his Thursday bedtime and
his Thursday-sized salary

that he spent on her
until she almost loved
Thursdays. That and

he was so nearly Friday
that sometimes she would
forget that he would never

have cocky certainty
or casual wear
or pizza nights,

and sometimes he would
forget, too, and they
were happiest then.

David:  “We can’t, no.”
Catherine:  “No, we tried.”

David:  “We’ve always enjoyed working together… specifically working together as well as hanging out.”

“Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world. We see everything from behind, and it looks brutal. That is not a tree, but the back of a tree. That is not a cloud, but the back of a cloud. Cannot you see that everything is stooping and hiding a face? If we could only get round in front–”
