I’ve been trying to compute
how we are one thing
and appear as one thing
Like celebrating twenty-four years
but actually we’ve been together twenty-six.
Like celebrating on the tenth
but actually got married on the ninth.
Like what appears
and what is actual.
We seem to have a lot of that in our life.
I guess it’s not anything to worry about
but it is sort of schizoid just the same.
So which one of me
married which one of you
