Brothers (for Polo)

one of them sees quickly,
almost immediately

a teacher might say
the other is less bright

since he gets it right away,
the bright one
hardly ever asks
refining questions

his brother,
in desperate emulation,
remains silent
in his undefined dark

and thus the gap
between them
widens
