Two For One







Two For One                                                 

In the beginning
there were three of us
but we played shark
until
there were two of us

One womb
one bed
two lives
one will

We shared the homework
straight A’s
for a piece of A

We shared lovers
mirror-biased or breeder
and put notches on our handcuffs

One hand
one heart
we’ll cut this life together
rolling over any
who try to silence our whispers
