“There’s this friend of mine
with curved lips
and a crooked mind…”
“There’s this friend of mine
with a heart full of pain
and soul full of lies…”

Halt friend,
these ones you tell about
baring to me their vanities,
their faults and ill toothed bouts
I fear,
that someday, even now
you will bare to another
my tottering faults through your lips
creases you never let me see
never told me about
and perhaps when I saunter by
you would say
you know that friend? That’s him.
