My father says in the darkness of the night, with your lover
You're three. No more, no less. Remember, it's a ritual
of two bodies and God, or the wind, or a winged promise
hovering over you both, its white feathers burning in the heat
of love. But with you, I'm a double-yolked egg — a siamese twin.
There are two spiral minds within this frail body of ours,
—two helices intertwined about a common axis & there is
no parting / to this union borne under a red moon.

I read this piece, pondered on it, read it again and pondered some more.

Wow! I keep going back to read it. Love the the description and use of metaphor. What I understand from it is that the two are one and there's nobody in between.

The writer metaphorically explains this piece as a case where two souls dwells in one body. A show of a feeling that love can not go wrong. Beautiful piece.

This poem is beautifully written. Sanni use of Metaphor to express his father's point of view and his point of view on vow is unique and simultaneously written. Great poem.

Poetry has a way of making you find meaning within the strokes and curves of each words.

There's more to a pair, the romantic feelings and environment. They are not always lonely, even in silence, their mind talks

My favourite line has to be "white feathers burning in the heat..."
