The Stranger’s heart

Worlds apart
Heard voices in each other’s head
Tongue tied is the stranger’s heart

Face to face they spoke of art
The mongrel and the thoroughbred
Worlds apart

A feverish chart
Two moist dots kept an invalid bed
Tongue tied is the stranger’s heart

Belle lettres folded like a dart
Telling beads on a blooded thread
Worlds apart

A fearful start
Guardian angels with their worn out tread
Tongue tied is the stranger’s heart

When Eve disturbed the apple cart
Lovers flung themselves unwed
Worlds apart
Tongue tied is the stranger’s heart
