slipping, skipping double Dutch
double-handed, spin and touch

double-dipping, double-date
double four is always eight

double trouble, double take
double-action-powder cake

double-dribble, double fault
double-thick chocolate malt

double-header, Cracker Jack
double or nothing, don’t look back

NaPoWriMo — Day Fifteen:   Half-way.  Write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles. You could incorporate doubling into the form, for example, by writing a poem in couplets. Or you could make doubles the theme of the poem, by writing, for example, about mirrors or twins, or simply things that come in pairs. Or you could double your doublings by incorporating things-that-come-in-twos into both your subject and form.

I don’t know why this prompt was so difficult for me.  I went back and forth and wrote six different poems, scrapping them all.  This one survived.  😊
