Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang
Betsy McKenzie Jan. 11, 2006

He is neat and careful, meticulous and tidy.
I cannot get through the day without smudges
Of ink on my nose, shirt tails coming loose.
He knows where everything is, or thinks he does.
I used to, but totally lost control, gave it up.

But his boundaries are tight.
He never would have tried
Szechuan, Mexican, Thai
If not for me. Even broccoli
Is one of my small victories.

When we work crosswords
What he can’t do, I can.
We are a team - in puzzles
And in life. Yin and yang.
