Neil Ellman


We oppose each other
you and I
but we are one
and form a line
of stars, a constellation
of antonyms, paradox
and counterpoints
the union of our souls
in syzygy
we complement
and contemplate
each other’s hold
the push and pull
wibble and wobble
of gravity  
as if we were
in love.

Neil Ellman lives and writes  in New Jersey (USA).  He has published numerous poems in print and online journals and anthologies throughout the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe, and from the United Kingdom to Nepal.  His latest collection, an e-chapbook, Double-Takes, is available as a free PDF download from Fowlpox Press in Canada.
