they greet each other 
as well as neighbours will 
parting only to allow words 
to pass between them 
but it's the silence 
that suits them best 
for it's then 
that sadness or happiness is expressed 
neither taking leave of the other 
seemingly synchronous together 
except in the event of a "pout" 
one chooses to withdraw 
the other sticks it out

    I like this little write Gerry. The last line made me think of pouty lips when someone is sulking.
