to my double

adam aitken

Even my beautiful other half
reminds me of you

We are growing old
at a simultaneous pace

We both take
the exact half of the first

bottle of wine
After that the wisdom-ratio

is pure astronomy

We watch the same programs
and laugh together

You used to pick the murderer
first

now I do

We cry together too
when once it was only

one half that cried
the other stony faced

Now our teeth
engage perfectly

We kiss much more
and for longer

On retirement
we know exactly

what we want to see
Love is a kind of

intense plot awareness
I look at myself

I see you
