The nude, achingly curvy
silver girls may be sisters or
friends or maybe even lovers,
but one thing is clear.
They are not talking.
They sit in profile,
impossibly firm breasts
and farrah fawcett flowing hair,
facing away from each other,
motionless, staring out
at opposite sides of the street.

Past the mudflaps and
down the street,
a raven keeps kissing himself
in the shallow gutter water
