|Carol, me, Allen, Cam, Katie, Mary|
i came across an old poem today and was reminded that one of the reasons i love my siblings so much is that they make me laugh until i cry. this piece is entitled 51 because it belongs in a series....
two sisters and a brother and i watched
dad sleep in his chair yesterday
his legs practically running a marathon
we began discussing restless leg syndrome
only we call it
it feels like i have strings inside my leg bones
that come out the soles of my feet
someone starts pulling on them
like a marionette
it’s like my blood is running backwards
not angry backwards
my toenails itch….
itchy toenails is a
of the heebie-jeebies
and the laughing-till-we-cried?
what do you love about your siblings?
