They were always looking
in different directions,
different perspectives.

They were always answering
different questions,
different opinions.

moulding the days they bungled together,
offered up, with indifference,
to the cruel world.
They expect not a repayment
(on the record),
comfortable that they
will continue to benefit
(off the record)
from the beautiful strife
they passed on.
