Two into Two, Annie Finch

Two Into Two

Are we one or are we two,
face in fingers, hand in arm?

Are we one or are we two,
since your harming is my harm?

One came from two when we lay and breathed,
and two came from one when my will came in.

One turned to two when I found you,
two turned to one when we heard a sound.

Hand over head in a peaceful place,

I came from you until we found me.

(Are we two or are we one,
face in fingers, hand in arm?)

Are we one or are we two
(since your harming is my harm?)
