Why don’t we sit outside


The first time they looked and look 
Now they sit. ‘Can I have the usual Please’.
The feminine one pours her speech
The toned brown eyes smiles and sieves.


Once a week they meet to laugh
To dance away the trifle of life.
To cut the edges - trim, trim.
‘Oh, its already time to leave.’


‘Today, why don’t we sit outside?’


Sitting sideways, normally face to face
The feminine one turns; head down.
The toned brown eyes tries to look in her eyes.


She speaks with purple scented Iris words - 


‘Our afternoon song we can no longer sing.’

K.Oni

  1. interesting title - why dont we sit outside could represent a metaphor for freedom and they use to sit inside like a cage (maybe thats what she felt) and now outside she wants to sing a different song.
