.Twin Virus Face to Face


PE 4 swimming lesson Amoranto, Cubao

I dive at the pool
swim freestyle
underwater
I open my eyes
Minute bacteria facing
face to face

drifting beneath
in chlorinated pool
bubbling
multiplying the germs

I step up
looking back universal solvent
I mirror myself
my face is floating
facing back to me
and boomerang single identity
macro germs contaminate
floating my unclaimed twin
since birth
accidentally we meet
today spreading viruses
in this mask-wearing world
