side by side, on the lawn
next to the pond
that ran down to your house.
Sitting there together, subversive
in our views – yet never lovers not
to each other.
We wanted to live, see the world
stepping far away from our backgrounds
Suicide, births marriages, and deaths
unremitting seasons –
Side stepping the foot paths
that led good men to their destiny.
how the unearthly bonds of our singular
would one day bring us back as one…
