Two Things – a poem

“Two Things”
a poem by Jeremy C Kester

Do we understand
the difference between love
& lust?
Between pain & death?
Or beauty & the vile?
To hold something so tight
that it escapes
thought or reason
Like we never had it at all.

It can escape reason, life.
As if there was a difference
like death & life, two coins
or the same coin flipped
& love
or lust binding together
what it is we believe is
two things separated
a difference between indifference.
