Ivan Jenson

Two of a Kind

you are standing
within my boundaries
in my comfort zone
and my personal space
you wear my shirt
we talk with shared inflection
share pet names
fave songs and weekends
this is our same ol' scene
and we are going steady
as a Norwegian cruise ship
we might one day become
sun-burnt seniors holding
hands in lazy chairs
with kids and grand kids
running around the
blue pool of time
I get this feeling
we might
just make it
till death do us part


Born in LA, Ivan Jenson was a prodigy in poetry and art. He moved to New York City where he received recognition and praise for his bold Pop Art. His Absolut Jenson painting was featured in Art News, Art in America, and he has sold several works at Christie's New York. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Word Riot, Hidden City Quarterly, Thoughtsmith, Viral Cat, Poetic Desperation, and Bread & Circuses, among others.
