Zebra Twins & American Paint: Old Friends in Great Falls

To our friends at Lockmoor Farm, from Bodhi & Shoshin:

 

Old friends, old friends,

Sit on their parkbench like bookends

A newspaper blown through the grass

Falls on the round toes

of the high shoes of the old friends

 

Old friends, winter companions, the old men

Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset

The sounds of the city sifting through trees

Settle like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

 

Can you imagine us years from today,

Sharing a park bench quietly

How terribly strange to be seventy

 

Old friends, memory brushes the same years,

Silently sharing the same fears

 

~ Paul Simon, "Old Friends"
