Sister

Burgundy-Wine-Color-Watercolor-photo-backdrop-Vinyl-cloth-Computer-print-wall-Photography-Backgrounds.jpg_640x640.jpg

Sister hides

behind

brunette mantle

dyed

burgundy,

and I wonder

whether

obscured amber orbs

jammed inside her eye

sockets

are human,

or glass

beads that once belonged

to her favorite baby

doll.

 

Sister says,

I’m cursed like Mother,

and I wonder

whether

she owns vocal

cords,

or plastic mama

box

manufactured

in Japan.

 

If I shake her,

will she speak

faster?

 

Awful

lot of questions

Sister

can’t

answer

unprovoked.

    1. Thank you so much Charlie. This was a gamble, because you’re right. It’s a lot different from the style I’ve developed. I’m so happy you recognize that, and can still appreciate the words and emotion I’ve put into this piece. You are always making me smile. You’re one of the reasons I keep doing what I do. ❤️❤️❤️

        The ending of your comment really made me happy and I cried but out of joy. Happiness within my heart felt hope with your words. 🙂 Thank you.
