The Boys

The Boys

We met one, who was traveling with another.
The two, who were travelling with another
and two others
to make 5
plus us,
the girls,
made 7.

Then two stay for two days,
two and one think one day fine,
and us, the girls,
ride on.

"The plan is, we'll catch you tomorrow."
Says one of the original two.

So we look behind us for 3 days,
and see no figures
chasing behind.

"Wouldn't it be funny if we saw them at the park?"
"Wouldn't it be funny if we saw them at the buffet?"

But they are not at the park or at the buffet.

"Wouldn't it be funny if we beat them to the coast?"
But today is a rest day.
We stop, they ride.
They may catch, and they may pass, thinking they were catching the whole way.

Like socks in the laundry,
we linger, hurl and collide.
