The first time I

See them together
I think maybe
I’m seeing double,
identical twin
brothers under-
dressed for sub-
zero weather,
killing time waiting
for the 5:13 A.M.
bus, drinking a six
of the cheapest
beer sold at corner
24 hour across
the street, trading
hits on massive
roll your own
doobie, then taking
one last piss in bank
parking lot.
I want to ask them
if they’re reporting
to jail but I know
it’s much worse
than that, they’re
going to work.
