This is how we know them

This is how we know them

Kirsty has a grey bobble hat with a white bobble
that dances as she trots arm-in-arm with her lover.
Luisa sports a blur peaked cap made of corduroy,
with streamers of grey hair escaping into the frigid air
DK wears no hat but in deference to the cold
has three layers zipped to his chin
Mike's multicoloured woollen dreadlocks
bring a smile to those he passes
and one Amy sports a luminous peasant's hat,
the other a balaclava with a faux-mohecan.

and Rachel?
Rachel has flaming red hair bursting from a purple scarf
and carried her heart in a novel.
