Two young spies wearing checkered blazers
and thick-rimmed glasses
trip over beige, improvised obstacles.

They sit behind their super-computer.
One of the spies has dark ringlets of hair
that sweep over his skull like clouds.

The other spy keeps extra supplies
inside an old fashioned doctor bag
but is still light on her feet.

No one, everyone sees them.
They gather information to send off
to someone they don't know and will never meet.

Their lives are full of danger, intrigue, drama.
They wait for no one to assist them and
see only enemies at every turn.

Care-free and inconspicuous,
these two gray-looking spies
cover the world in foot tracks.
