On Being A Twin

I'm not really a poet, but it being another mutual birthday, I couldn't let it pass...

On being a twin.

What’s it like then?
Being a twin?

It’s like seeing your face,
but in a different place.

Like someone dressing in
the contours of your skin.

Like sharing shape and thought,
and every single fault.

It’s all I’ve ever known.
Ask me another one.
