They eat beans
mostly, this old yellow pair,
Dinner is a casual affair
Plain chipware on a plain and creaking wood,
Two who are Mostly Good
Two who have lived their day,
But keep on putting on their clothes
And putting things away.
Remembering, with twinklings and twinges,
As they lean over the beans in their rented
that is full of beads and receipts and dolls and
cloths, tobacco crumbs, vases and fringes.
