Mag 248: Their Union

Bond of Union - 1956 - M.C. Escher

It seems hard to acclimate themselves.
Each questioning their bearings. 
Each unwinding their individuality.
Each individual struggling to be themselves.

By their union they have unwrapped  
a bit of who they were and have become
yet a third person--

She feels her ball bearings free
and He, his. They seem lost 
and at the same time found.

Sometimes they feel they have left behind
a simpler time. A time when their thoughts
and feelings traveled within a tighter orbit.

It was different then. Not to say it was better.
Not to say it was worse. Just less complex.
