and so women are the mystical

allurements of nature

stars of glittering eyes

clouds of inspiration

horizons the curves of their bodies

and so men the misshapen

images of the brute force that brought us forth

tending this reality with arms and legs

like rotten tree trunks and their spitting snakes

their heads and hearts like granite

and so this is the duality

that powers the cosmic swirl

of our fall from greater heights unimaginable

two wrongs making nothing right
