It was a mid Spring full moon,
which, as he looks over his shoulder,
seems to be laughing
at its own joke.
People often thought they were twins,
actually they were just brothers
who met on
relatively rare occasions. There lives
had been as different as chalk & cheese.
She scrutinizes them from the opposite table,
they were both long past it,
too late at the gate.
And as they walk away, who´s poor,
her laughter’s shrill & harsh,
into the alleyways long after.
Only one of them hears it,
the other just goes on talking into the blue.
