by Dan Mitrut

Mountains of ideas were raised
between Castor and Pollux.
There were dug precipices in the atom
to separate them,
and no other twin brother
passed through the customs
to the constellations.

A half of mine was sold
to the past
just for a few silver pieces,
and the other half still writes,
by only one finger,
cosmological theories about love.
