Fission

You are both alike in many ways

in stature, unmistakably

in attitudes, definitely

they parallel closely.

 

You both adore the movies

crunch on the kernels

at the bottom of the popcorn

and sneak out for cigarettes

at the boring parts.

 

He favors the dramatic

Just as you did

preferring the wide, sweeping gesture

to the contained one.

 

Your are a born sentimentalist

he, too, writes verse

you’d laugh at the same jokes

probably even make similar ones.

 

If you met over a beer

the two of you would become

instant friends

there’d be no separating you.

 

The similarities are uncanny

except for one striking difference

A simple one

He happens to love me.
