Primary Group

They were that kind of people clapping with their heartbeat
like caught fish slap their tails against the ground
they cheated on life from time to time
smiling with tight lips stretched in a straight line
faking laughter clasping teeth
as if they checked if a gold coin was genuine
she broke some cheap glassware twice a month
he shot targets in the amusement park
she had skin burns because of bleaching
he always had scars after shaving
she used Nivea hand cream every night
he slept in his long underwear
there was always something more important in their life
like the extra folds of the tablecloth
everything had to be stretched and even
like a road for high speed vehicles
when they quarreled they played fox and hedgehog
often changing roles
they were two peoples in a Volkswagen
for a quarter of a century

Have something to say about the poem?

I am from Romania, I write poems and haiku and sometimes I translate them into English. My poems and haiku were published in various e-zines or poetry journals and magazines in print in Romania or abroad. Poetry is for me like champagne poured in a mug. I discovered this site and I can say that I found many good poems here.
