Two Tulips in a Pot

Some people think
they’re brothers,
but they aren’t.

Others are quite
certain they are
more than friends,

they’re lovers –
but they’re not.
All we really know

is every day
in every weather,
cold or hot,

they come back,
to the same bench
in the park,

from noon
to one o’clock,
and sit as close

as if they were
two tulips
in a pot.
It seems to be
their lot in life:
their spot.
