Our Two Halves - Dec. 6, 2023

half of you is

comfortable inside


the other half

craves the outdoors


one that likes routine

the social web civil discourse

with family and friends

kindness and compassion


while another needs fresh air

to get out move the feet

sharpen the eyesight smell

for clues listen for movement


can we ever grasp

this enigma of the beast

within the man?


the wants and needs

of one part

so different

from the other


and then there’s that

mysterious something

that stalks me

on some full moon nights
