doubles require two

half of which is 1

I am 1/2 of no two

therefore, am I half of whole remains—

bone-pecked flesh

and this never-ending quest

dissected and scrutinized

beneath these magnified lights

double requires two

but what if you’re half of 1/2

never knowing whole

Prompt: Theme is double.



30 poems in 30 days. Do you dabble in word play as well? Let’s create 30 in 30.

Love and Ink,


  1. You make me do a double read. No half reads here. This is more than whole. So complete you are Grace! Never half.

Words, love them! Have some? Leave them.
