Science Class

Nothing makes me more uncomfortable than identical twins.

When I first learned about DNA

I felt special because I am the only me out there

There is no one else with my face.

But then a classmate of mine

Raised her hand curiously and asked about identical twins.

It was then my illusion was shattered like a mirror

I had begun to realize that identical twins have the same DNA.

It began to give me hives thinking about

What if I had an identical twin?

I would no longer be special.

There wouldn’t just be one of me.

There would be two.

Beautiful.

the clouds moving across the pale blue sky, dripping rain down on my patio. My cats sleeping next to each other, butt to butt, when about two years ago they couldn't stand each other. They breathe in

Cold Rush

Time to increase down the aisle. Opening up to something else that I can't see, to feel the assault of love slap me in the face.

Madness

Expressions formed on my flesh leaving being bruised marks, carried out of my sight. Sly smiles creep up my legs causing a handicap, crumbling me to the ground.
