Twice As Nice Signal Poem
i want to say something about the men in my life (i am a woman).
there are two men in my life and there always are.
there are always two of everything in my life,
and one day i shall write about it.
(among the sisters i have two zakiyyahs! who woulda thunk?)
in the meantime i can draft a poem about writing a book
about the twice as nice signal, the twoness, that lets me know
life is watching and being playful and giving me back some humor
i usually do not get. it lets me in on this one.
this is elementary enough, we can show her, life says.
so i go through life looking and watching my step
being careful not to trip because i have not noticed that twin.
the way is often smoothed for me because I be the sky.
no wonder that my term with menfolk lasts for some time.
they keep me grounded, hold out their roots,
then we two become one.
