My Betty and Veronica

Jug head and Archie

were minor satellites

moving in a distant elliptical arc

around the center of it all

my Betty and Veronica

duality is at the very heart of everything

we're told

the yin and yang

the up and down

and yes reluctantly I'll say it

the light and dark

not absolute scales mind you

because it is here that relativity holds its ground

with my Betty and Veronica

darker and lighter is all

white and black never figures in at all

not the whore and the Madonna

one without the other

lost to comprehension

no, not with my Betty and Veronica

no winner take all

Betty without Veronica

Veronica without Betty

was nothing at all
