Two beautiful babes on board the Eurostar,
pink sunglasses and perfectly applied lipstick.
The clouds have crept from the sky,
all that remains is dazzling, brilliant sunshine,
and the girls look pretty on their passports,
passing landmarks as they lean into each other’s shoulders,
champagne, gentle and delicious on perfectly painted lips.
aching for adventure,
one mastering the tongue as the train runs faster and faster,
while the other writes a little verse,
about how wonderful it is to have a friend.
