A Mind Infinite

Infinity: The Views of a Dreamer

One Was Black, One Was White

Old men,

divided by self-created lines

Old men whom had shared the exact same interests,

ticking exactly as an equal

Despising the other proclaiming him an ‘inferior’,

dogmatically drawn into constant racial bias of the other

One was black,

one was white

Each drank the same flamboyant wine, dined as one and even fell asleep at the same time,

their own names were the same; with the minor exception of spelling differences

At night in the shadow of the moon,

as if clockwork the old men would take out their trash at the exact same time

Widowed men,

their wives left them widowed at the age of 45

Cancer was their wives demise,

harbored in the husband’s bones the same terminal illness

They never exchanged conversation,

nor kept the other company

Two old souls a representation of human hatred would die lonely on the same fateful day,

never knowing of the other

One was black,

one was white
