Sibling Anxiety (Eggshells in the Carpets)

dear sister, sorry you missed
the chance to know
dear brother,

ever the sleepless fear
just down the hall,

still galaxies away,
never found the heart or
even thought to bother
,

couldn’t see your raft sails or
curly pigtails through the
swallowed fumes midst our
bathroom clutter,

was too busy smashing windows thru
mirrors with fists haunted
by hammers,

dear sister, sorry you missed
the chance to know
dear brother,

though, in truth i’m so
relieved we never
bothered
,

it’s hard to speak with
voices smothered.
