((11) Friends

Wholesome hearts,
well deserved friendship,
good chunks of truth
wrapped in cigarette smoke.

Singing together, playing our tune.
High school, low voices,
Coughing.... Silence, please!
A true lady is listening.

Winning together,
playing the same game,
to simply convince each other
we may be wrong.

Drinking from the same chalice,
We taste the same curse:
'Beauty,
You bring us Truth'.

Little as we are,
we look through the same keyhole
to sometimes have
a good finishing touch.
