My Sister MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   My Sister

Amid showering raindrops,
A solitary figure whirls.
Bright orange slicker,
Lemon umbrella.
Barefoot.
An elfin face,
Wide denim eyes,
Lashes edged with beading droplets.
Cropped blond hair,
Streaked with moisture.
The scent of my discarded perfume
Mingles with the musty dampness.
