Assumption of Identical

  Image by Tanya Layko (Таня Лайко) We are contradictions sharing the same mirror, neon and neutral blush swimming a dream to be more than faces assigned by eyes to be one reflection.   I wear my heart in pressed coral while you keep yours in the secluded view of trusted.   We burn the candle at both ends, my wick reaching the center in an ashy blink, while yours flirts with oxygen in sputtering wisps of patience.   We are from a single stem blooming as different flowers, the eyes folly identical always flows the same direction. ©Susie Clevenger 2021 I'm honored to have my poem in June 2021 issue of Visual Verse
