Double

My disability accompanies me

everywhere; I have always to effect

a double introduction, explain:

there's two of us; were inseparable.

It's like traveling with a solipsistic

and highly vocal toddler,

or with an identical twin,

fractiously demanding

five star treatment as her special right.

I would gladly disown her, but she

adheres;

Even in the dark I cast a shadow.
