CREATOR: Ashley Musick
This poem explores the concept of duality through the dual perceptions of the two speakers as they focus on a retelling of the same story. Within the poem, both speakers take opposing viewpoints, but then switch perspectives half way through, showing the duality of perspective and mindset surrounding a specific event or story. The format of the poem shows how the perspectives of the two narrators relate to each other; whether their perceptions of the story align or grow apart as the poem continues.
