Tap, tap like a hammer

Bringing down an empty glass

Again bringing it down

I meet your eyes

Reading nothing

What is my reply?

You shift gaze to my friend

I sit

Hands together

Reaching now for cold tea

Another tap

Words louder now


How bound are you

To tapping

Reaching inside your polo

To slap your fist over your heart

This is serious

Not to me

An accord imminent

Resolution predetermined

For just after

The next tap

Worth killing for

You think


You have honored me

With emotion

Waving your hand

You stand

Shouting now you

Take the lawn

Cafe side entrance

Take your seat or do not

Speak with me

Or do not 

We are brothers

I know it
