We met in summer, fathers’ daughters we,
Though during school years we were separated
And parents’ hopes were not a guarantee,
We reunited, friendship unabated.
But then one autumn, new names we selected
To be our first identities online,
And since we two were already connected
The BBS served only to refine
Our giddiness- for once, were weren’t just two,
We found like-minded souls around the world,
So Sophie and November joined the crew,
And motley, joyous freak flags we unfurled.
Though worldly currents sweep us far apart
We both know how to navigate by heart.
