A slightly more abstract poem than usual

Both of Me are One

I have
an identity
It is
Everyone else has one too
but mine is unique


The twins
each have an identity
and also
they are identical

But their identities
are not identical


The identical twins
cannot be identical
because even if two things
are exactly the same as one another
one of them is 'the one'
and the other is 
'the other'

So they are different


The only thing that can be identical to a thing
is the thing itself
and the thing that the thing has 
to which it is identical
is its identity


I have an identity
It is mine
And it is identical
to me.
