((11) Friends - Poem by Luis Gil de la Puente

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.
