twos

two apathies don't walk together in the sun. they don't talk together on the stoop. they lie next to each other in bed relaxing their eyelids.

two smiles squeeze next to each other on a bench.

two hands operate apart.

two letters can stand side by side or with a space in between them.

two men eat bread in a corner too small for them.

two eternities run along side one another. one falls into a ditch, crosses the others path and then tangentializes. they will never meet again.

two women are not finding the time to be women.

two conductions send different species of birds up into the air in different parts of the world. the birds hover slightly. they fall slightly.
