Perhaps To Basho The Twins Are Boring - Poem by RIC BASTASA

He himself does not want
To be imitated

Too boring like
A melon cut into half
Mirroring each other

Aren’t these twins

Or Basho was just envious
He may be a poet of his age

But his poems never bore
Him a son

Or a mirror of his own face.
