The bonding happened in utero

Space dust from opposing planets

Colliding in the womb.

With first gasps of life

Mutating into

Contrary flesh and blood

Ying and yang

Exquisitely packaged chaos.


Dark and light

Play and fight

One sleeps day and night,

One screams, born uptight.

Mars and Venus,

Upside down and

All over the place

Taking the pace of


Most extraordinary


To new, unexplored

Speeds and dimensions.

In the future

Each minute timetabled

All through the day

Nothing and no-one

Stands in her way.

This other will wander

Saunter, amble.

Convoluted concentration.

Each seeking an

Individual, unique
