Reverse Meiosis

Everyone couples off
and begins to forget.

They absorb each other.

Like cell division
watched in reverse.
Two complete cells
become one.

They unravel themselves
and re-spool the line
differently,

halfing and wholing back up.
it gets confusing:
who is who
and who doesn’t exist anymore. 

Chemicals make this happen. you know.
Chemicals in their brain
that tell them they’re happy.
Tell them they’re getting what
they’ve always wanted.
Tell them what they always wanted.
When all they’ve ever
“wanted”
was to make their brains
swim
in more chemicals.

Because the chemicals have us;
they make us.
We are all the same.
