Each lives a sitcom the other stopped watching
after the second season but can still follow
in sporadic episodes: the same familiar characters
all up to the same crazy antics.
They don’t attempt reentry; they can’t blend
colours long dried. This friendship is already
a finished painting, so they gather up
their dusty sketches and move
to a new medium.
