(a poem I wrote this morning)


Peers apart face to face, reflected
Perfectly; pieces together side by side,
Balanced unsteadily; here and there perspectives
Turn, doubly mirrored; for and against
Positions match, singly twinned;

Twins identical, both becoming all or
Nothing; partners equal, neither allowing two
Or one; segregated images, distinct without
Difference sometimes blend; distant intimates, contempt
Or humility always follow.
