How 2 Makes 1

"How 2 Makes 1" by William Irving

I understood, how 2 makes 1 be/coming.
I went ahead and went,
head on head strong-
There was al/ways a be/fore and after,
here/w henceforth
There is a scar beneath my right eye
streaming to my lip
noticeable by love
who once lapped the wounded hope it’d heal.
Unfaint, my left hand is also so-marked,
down the top and half way down one finger,
split by a box cutter,
sewn by stiches-
who stiches a bleeding heart?
sometime ago lapped-
then sucked to siphor love,
faithful love’
it’s blood, brine-or-pour streaming.
I understand now, how 2 make 1 be/coming
a storm formulating like a tornadoe
against all who oppose their Being undying
in the calm of existence,
there are sentences,
stanzas really,
written by poets brutal
as moving things out of their way,
after the storm
be/for his bleeding,
and a tornadoe resides in rest
attesting how 2 make 1 becoming-
