Is supposed to mean “the twins”
Except they weren’t.
Didn’t even have the same father
(And having Tyndareus as a dad is not the same as having Zeus DNA)
(Not even close)
No, they’re just brothers
whose hearts make space for the other
In synchronized beats
Even if your own brother doesn’t text back
That doesn’t mean you don’t have a twin
