Caught sight of it,

Just by accident

But maybe not

Half smile

We stare, coolly, in the heat

Life Shot

Unaware

We were posing, natural,

One hand on your shoulder,

Other wrist draped around his neck

Like Lovers

Anyone's neck


Human Contact, beloved,

The light shines over our faces,

Me and you and them and everybody

Like joy

Maybe its just the tan we picked up

Which makes us glow

Like children

Or lovers


Something noble in our gilded skin,

Almost chiselled somehow

Stony

Cold to the touch

Like marble, regal

Carved for ever and ever

Half alive to keep others blooming

And stir romance

For all the world

Like Lovers
