The Sisters

kiraafinifrockKiraa

after the poem “Die Family” by William Virgil Davis

Only the girl on the left is carefree

cross eyed

mouth sideways

entertaining the camera

The girl on the right is turned toward her

looking with curiosity at her older sister

with the same colored hair

She is leaning inward

unsure of herself

overlapping their shoulders

wanting to be close to her

hunched forward

nervously falling into her sister

and away from herself

Her eyes are locked onto the older sister

in awe of her

noting every movement

nervously and intently

knowing soon she will be gone

with the rest

but for now

she is alive through her

In the backseat of an unknown car, where they go doesn’t matter to her. ​​​​​​​

Author Notes: based on a photo of my oldest sister and I ten years ago
