Bloodlines

My sister would have been 29 today

 

I wander streets you’ve never heard of

Couldn’t place on a map

But you’d have gone here in a heartbeat

Given the chance

 

I remember your habits

Soft hair, and eyes like a lioness

Invulnerable

I wanted to be you

 

You left before we knew you’d gone

I’ve got a decade on you now, and more

It doesn’t matter

You’re still older than me
