one is two then one


SoCS badge 2015

too much, not enough

too little, way too much

there never is a

bartering place

without a space

in my head

to argue price

to discuss trades and compromises

if it’s two, then two

if its four then four

when what I really need

is one

just one

to love

to comfort to trace

their outlines

on the map of my face

on the meadow of my bed

to feel that one is two then one


I even closed my eyes when I keyboarded “one is two then one” to make it as SoC as possible.

Thanks, Helen, for to/too/two as prompt.
