Lovers’ farewell

see-you-again-3433689_960_720
Culture screens his eyes,
warns his conscience
and cripples his hands.
He sees how lovers farewell:
they hold their hands,
their eyes entwine;
then slowly they turn –
back to back –
release their hands,
fingers farewell –
the little one, at last.
He raises his hand,
and it shrinks down,
but his eyes tip-toe;
she turns; their eyes meet;
culture screens,
and they farewell.
