it’s taken me eight years to see it.

this situation is familiar,
yet not.
similar poses, and the context is 
both different and the same.

six years apart
the irony does not escape me,
do you see it too?

set up a divider,
or a mirror.
you’ll get identical results,
matched yet wholly coincidental.

are we puppets or mannequins,
controlled by Fate?
no, of course we’re not,
this situation is our own doing.

it is uncanny,
how things have played out.
unpredictable, luckily,
neither of us is boring.

i have to wonder,
what might be six years from now?
a new context, 
perhaps, adding to the chain.
