Genesis Tango

1

We had one lung,

so we shared breaths.

 

We had one eye,

so we took turns seeing.

 

We had a breast.

One set of genitals.

We made due.

 

 

This was the first day.

 

 

2

We moved in circles.

We moved in arcs.

 

We moved as no other creatures here have moved…

 

Together apart.

Together apart.

 

On two legs we tangoed,

your eyes and my heart.

 

 

3

We made something more than the sum of our parts.
