Streetlights are the four legs
Of one soul in two bodies.
Streetlights are the weary hips
Of glowing figures.
Streetlights are the mute walks
Of lonely souls of ‘bached-elors’
Kissing walkways with their soles,
As they await their ‘ten virgins’.
Streetlights are the fingerprints
Of stainful men
On the walls of life.
