Doublet

DSCI0010You are diminished
fists down at the limit.
For all that is breaking
by your own making.
A boy for all seasons,
still, there was never a reason
to believe in the music
so sweetly displayed.
Are you diminished
pockets bursting and anguished?
the empty plenitude found
in two heads unbound.
All the rubbish and words
no one asked to be heard.
Eyes that don’t move,
for a heart far removed
still listening
every day.

For wordskillunltd, by request: “what comes to mind if you were to play Two Headed Boy?”

  1. Why does it say *Lackawanna* on the bridge: I no longer want, I am too diminished?

  2. Lackawana is another town I have yet to visit, although I hear it’s name mentioned a lot in my neck of the woods.
