Double 2

Body doubles mirror life I met
the mother of another's other -
her daughter duplicate Madonna.
So proud the bearer of
offsprung bareness.

Twin toads peel back like
carpet tape with agricultural
hairs stuck in the gum back
bones folded on their own doppel.
Trace elements are shared
two sides of the same coin
in mint, clover, hay and earth.

A pressed flower from the year passed.
