My Sister

September 3, 2010
By Anonymous

Distant, she
hides behind austere beauty,
striking and ever masked she does not
know my name
Always last in line she’s never had the chance to
play a tom-tom in music class
Frigid, she has never stood beside me nor has she ever
whispered the word ‘overt’
She wears vulnerability like a slip, and insists on
wearing her overcoat indoors
