In search of other half of a twin situation,
you will have been born May 30, 1970,
around lunchtime. This will have been in New York.
You will have been reluctant to leave the womb;
yours was an induced labor.
You may be looking for me. I hope you haven’t given up.
I am of a feminine form but my main goal is honesty.
I try to be nice to people and often am because life is hard.
If you are my twin you will know.
Physically, I am an ectomorph. My nose was broken and so hooks.
My last little finger (left) is crooked. I am 5 feet 7 inches tall,
hair sometimes light, sometimes mousy, skin fair.
My eyes are blue but change in salt water,
where they are green.
I love being near the ocean. If you are my twin, you will know.
People call me Ish or Ishmael but that is not what they called me.
I will be an excellent twin.
When we come into contact, I think that your heart
will feel good: safe, strong and steady
instead of running away.
I intend to stay with you if we like each other.
You can easily find me on the world wide web;
a middle earth contraption that scans brains and shares
information, so be careful!
My full name now is Ishmael Klein.
I am a channel
and it’s challenging. Maybe you already know.
I love animals and jokes
if they are surprising. I can be useful.
I have a good imagination. Hope to meet you soon.
