2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 1 | Matches Poem | WritersDigest.com

  • We’re a match,
    the two of us,
    you with your
    temper and me
    too tempered
    you with your
    careful pacing
    and me
    with my wild
    last minute
    dashes.
    We’re a match
    of seeming
    opposites, seamed
    so closely together
    that sometimes
    there is no space
    between us
    like sky
    and sea at
    sunset on the
    Pacific.
