Our Complement

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






We all have
a counterpart,
the fancied "other half,"
to warm
the cockles of our heart
and simply
make us laugh.

We all have
a parallel,
the fancied "shadow side,"
to match
our jaunts by carousel
and simply
make us glide.

We all have
a complement,
the fancied "circle fill,"
to block
our years of discontent
and simply
make us thrill.
