Two for One

When some see black, others white, I see gray.
Yes and no, right and wrong, light and dark, or
good and evil, love and hate, night and day,
I do perceive, though two, are, at their core,

one. For, as in breath, what’s an in without
an ex? Can up be up deprived of down,
or small absent big, or in minus out,
or long short of short, or verb sans a noun?

Janus, the old god of gates, doors, doorways,
beginnings and endings, although two-faced,
personified in archetypal gaze
how two for one in our mind can be placed.

Perhaps why I look for the one in two,
