two

***

i carry two

(when one should suffice)

one is enough heavy weighty enough

dense hard thick enough

mucked filthy and crusted enough

(it is all i can do to keep it alone clean)

when the outside is dust and grime and bird

haven’t time enough to drive two cars

limbs enough to live two homes

lies enough to love two lovers

enough smiles to shine

(that both may seem joyful complete wondrous)

dichotomous duplicitous diverting double time to double life

(so neither lives loves moves

enough)

***

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.     – Matthew 6 : 24
