Two
Katerina Stoykova-Klemer
            Based on Bulgarian and American adages


Two sharp stones can’t
            Mill flower.

Two sharp bones can’t
            Make a joint.

Two stones can break
            Most bones.

You can kill two birds
            With one stone

Or the same bird twice
            With words.
