To my sister: A poem

We shared a toy.

My turn, now your turn,

“Do you wanna play?”

 

We shared the move.

Our house, well, old house,

“But I want to stay.” 

 

We share the car.

My turn, now your turn,

“…’Member! It’s my day.”

 

We share a family.

One known, one less so.

Dickybirds, duct tape, 

Tomayto, tomahto.

 

Everything’s fine?

— Right, right.

 

We share this unease.

A place that we go. 

“I promise, I promise, you are okay.”
