Twoism stands above a well, beneath the stars
(Hollows shaped in ancient mortar of the echoing dome)
It’s a single body. No, its two bodies. No, it’s a single body of two.
A single body of many.
Lao Tzu says and I keep repeating
One gives birth to two, two gives birth to three, three gives birth to the Myriad things all under heaven.
Its both one and two or two at once.
Hermes in marine-grade gesture.
A herald in helix-like whirl forms an absence.
In the body’s dead centre
In the exercise of imagining the left without the right.
The desire for both leaves me naked
Because my body has two arms”
