    Ther's one pair that comes to my mind here: the pair in 'Of Mice and Men'...
    Cheers.

    It's a great idea to compare human bond and connection to music, harmonious or discordant. A fine poem indeed. (Report) Reply

    Max, I have to agree with Tara about your 'octaves of the same song' - it certainly is a satisfying metaphor, as is this slice of life you portray in your highly accessible and wonderfully poetic style. Love your 'jaunty humor jingling between them' too. A thoroughly appealing piece. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    Now that is a brilliant analogy (octaves of the same song) . Lovely subtle rhyming scheme. I love to people-watch and have often wondered such a thing. Cousins? Brothers? Father and son? Excellent Max - and summed up so succintly. t x (Report) Reply
