Copy Cat Fight


Started a new set of prompts – I love lists of things – this one will prove to be endlessly productive for another couple of years – 227 Rules For Monks – 9 Not to make believe that a first bhikkhu has committed a pārājika by deliberately accusing a second one who shows similarity with the first.

Copy Cat Fight

no one could believe their eyes

it was if the likes of this

had never happened before

two people arrived

wearing almost the same thing

same colour same garments

different cuts

claiming they didn’t know

what each other was planning to wear

didn’t go to the same designers

didn’t plan to arrive

within minutes of each other

aren’t sleeping together

didn’t have the same ideas

at the same time

aren’t embarrassed at all

didn’t mean

to pull attention from the others


isn’t not a sin

to be so similar

being original

isn’t all its cracked up to be anyway

no they’ve never met before now

they aren’t interested in meeting

or being photographed together

different agendas

different lives styles


understand this

absolutely nothing in common

please stop using our names

in the same sentence

we don’t agree on anything


except of course

these coincidentally similar outfits

Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
