When I.Q. met E.I.
He was Ian Quinn,
she, Ellen Irwin.
Each believed they
trumped the other
for she knew how to talk to people,
whereas he had plenty to talk about.
When they joined unarmed forces
inside their test subject,
they created the polished politician—
a silver-tongued orator
who was worth her weight in gold.
(All 300 pounds of it.)
