They sit together,
Heads bending close
Toes touching in parallel lines
Through tiny holes
In their faded socks.
From somewhere faraway
And their mother shouts over the din.
She pulls a face, that might be her
In a few years, and the soft
Corners of her mouth struggle a smile.
And whispers that they shouldn't
A branch from some sort of bush
Behind them, they walk.
Of neatly boxed houses and
Flower-pot plants, until
They reach home, with red faces
And a backpack of excuses.
"We promise Mama, we'll
Come quicker tomorrow."
