penny man: penny
black penny white - two-
sided, equal, spinning
in the air, an equitable
fall and whichever face
is up only covers the
tail to be looked at too
the underside and edge
the face and lip - examined
the eye sipping analytical
but fair - one unequal
weight won't do - only
both make the artefact
the double-sided view: two
answers two
possibilities the opposite
ends of the see-saw
unique but needing the other
to move
