On the Keyboard

ON THE KEYBOARD

you are white
i am black
side by side
back to back

you are my self-image necessary
i am your alter-ego mandatory
in perfect contrast, we are one
in balanced symmetry, we are one

but me, you cannot be
my place, you cannot take
you, I cannot be
your place, I cannot take

you are my double, opposite
i am your shadow, requisite
you are fair, clean, conspicuous
i am dark, secretive, mysterious

and yet,

no word is typed
without You and Me!

– between you and me are words.
– between light and dark is delight.
– between ebony and ivory is mystery.
