How quiet and neat
the occasion that
the happiest and
most sad unite as
birds on a single
branch, each being
delicate as
such, each being
adjacent, each
each separate,
each complete

the other closes,
one begins,
the other ends,
one is never
enough, one is
always too much,
one is minor,
one is major,
one looks back,
one looks only
forward, one
the other adds,
both necessary,
both human

each one half
of the whole
thing, each
in time, each
for a time,
each only for
a time.
