"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

i sit curled up
on the leather couch
with a colouring
book and a box of crayons
she tells me
that i am just like her

she would run
fast footed into
her brothers
room and they would
sit and try to colour
anywhere but

     inside the

she has started
to forget to
shower regularly
to brush her
yellowing teeth
her skunk line
highlights the years
of damaged hair.

i don’t want to be
just like her
