Not While you Watch

When I walk with my sister,

her brassy nose pokes

at the jumbles of space

between today

and yesterday

where growth begins.

Her steady eyes

lurk

Behind violet skin

and sunburned chins

to stop my spirit from

reaching too high.

She

is the ‘Never’

that slaughtered my ‘Perhaps’.
