same same
eyes thumbs and toes
they have the same eyes
but hers are like South America
greener
and warmer
his eyes the same as her eyes
but browner like
brown suede shoes
with bronze and brass
she says and says
what she says is
she promises
lies are promises
promises aren’t lies
but she says promises
tells her promises to
his brown suede shoes
with bronze and brass.
This is becoming
the becoming of this is
a cry of tired cries
cold cries
very unlike
her eyes
greener
and warmer
like South America
but she’s not South American
but her eyes
they cry and cry
dry and dry
like a desert
in a rain forest
in South America
but she’s not South American.
